If it is autumn on the southern coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula, then it is still summer in Adelaide. So I discovered when I walked the city taking in the various Magic Object visual art exhibitions in this years Adelaide Festival of Arts whilst I waited for the Subaru Outback to be serviced.
I was more than happy to return to the cooler temperatures of the coast after spending several hours walking the city in the 36 degrees heat with its high humidity, due to a low-intensity heatwave that has hovered over south-eastern Australia for the past week. We have early autumn temperatures in the mid-to-high 20s on the coast.
I am happy to spend just over an hour to drive to Adelaide, and then dip in and out of the party atmosphere and the various cultural events after nearly morning walk along the coast.
It means that I take fewer photos of urban Adelaide but I’m happy to wear that for the benefits that living on the southern coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula offers.
