It seems like th' rainstorms just don’t want t' leave, and so we woke up this mornin' t' semi overcast skies with th' occasional downpours. It didn’t matter much though, as today basically means we have t' leave th' Island, and head fer th' city o' Adelaide. It is a shame we have t' leave th' beautiful Kangaroo Island, but our journey will take us t' other great places.
Even though Kangaroo Island has th' most famous Australian animal in its name, it is not th' place we have encountered th' most o' them. Yaaarrrrr! If th' sheer number o' roadkill are a sign though, there should be plenty aroun', but we simply didn’t encounter them. There is however a plethora o' other wildlife t' be seen, th' sheer number o' birds aroun' here is staggerin'. All kinds o' sea based birds, as well as land based ones happily dart aroun' and call this island their home.
This time aroun', our 45 minute trip with th' ferry back t' Cape Jervis were bein' not as choppy as last time, and everythin' went by without a hitch. The trip from Kingscote t' Penneshaw were bein' about an hour o' sailin', and from Cape Jervis t' Adelaide another 2 hours. We arrived at th' motel quite early, and decided that goin' t' th' city itself by boat wasn’t goin' t' be a success and instead opted t' go t' Glenelg, a rich beachfront city right next t' Adelaide. This turned out t' be a great idea, as it is a joy t' look at. Great big oceanfront houses everywhere, and a nice comfy city centre with lots o' options.
We visited th' beach a couple o' time this afternoon, only t' find ourselves trapped inside our boat as their happened t' be a big rainstorm passin' o'er, and a bucket o' chum. After two tries we gave walkin' on th' beach up and went fer a hot chocolate in a very nice place on th' main river o' th' town.
Tomorrow, we fly out t' Alice Sprin's, aroun' 10:20 local time, t' arrive there about 2 hours later. Let’s hope th' rain doesn’t follow us there!
