Today we drove up into the mountains about an hour-and-a-half south of us to the lovely little town of Tambourine. It has a lot of art galleries and craft shops along the main street and it was fun to stroll along and to step inside a few. There's even an authentic German cuckoo clock store. We went with our friends Bryn and Joan Bricknell and Dirk and Kerry Smibert. (Actually, I still wasn't yet walking well enough to stroll with everyone else, so they pushed me in the wheel chair.)
On the way there we stopped in the town of Yatala to try the famous Yatala Meat Pies. It was the best meat pie I've had since we've been here. Yummy.
We stopped and had some ice cream before leaving - and then, since we were in two cars went our separate ways. Bob and I stopped at Ikea on the way home to look at a dining room table we like.
