Friday 29 October 2010 Clare to Adelaide


We left Clare and headed for Adelaide, but I wanted to visit Kapunda and see where Sydney Kidman lived on the way.  It’s seems to be a very historic mining town with lots of character and some very nice old houses.  The Kidman residence was donated to the High School along with the 5 acres it was situated on.  A very impressive building.  Their original house is out of sight and overgrown by trees and weeds.  The new owners mustn’t want people looking in at them all the time.  We entered Adelaide via the new northern expressway, which made the trip a lot quicker than we had expected.  The rain had started and the winds were on their way, which is fairly common for here.  We dropped in on Jason, Maddie and Oliver and had some fantastic Chinese takeaway for dinner.
