Up early for another travel day today. We packed the car once more, said goodbye to my Sister, topped up the car with fuel and then headed off.
It was forecast to be a very hot day with strong northerly winds – catastrophic fire conditions across most of the state. We were a little wary and kept an eye out for anything that looked like a bushfire along our route. As it turned out, there were no problems where we headed and I don’t think it actually reached the 42 degrees that was forecast – but it was high 30’s at least.
We enjoyed our drive down through the Clare Valley, across to the Barossa Valley and then through the Adelaide Hills. We stopped in Angaston to visit one of our favourite shops – Angas Park where they sell all types of dried fruit and sugar or chocolate coated nuts and fruit.
We came in the back way to Mt Barker and avoided most of the traffic and so arrived before lunch at Leanne’s parents’ place.
