Today a day off the Writers’ Festival.
Not because we’re not loving it – we are. But we want to be tourists as well.
The David Roche House & Museum is a favourite of mine. Located in Melbourne Street not far from our Airbnb we decided on a tour of the house then a visit to o the museum.
Arriving right at 10 we were disappointed to hear that the tour was full.
So we regrouped and went into the museum. It was a collection of fashions by designers who were up and coming in the 70’s then died of an AIDS related illness.
Some great fashions by well known designers Halston, Moschino. A great exhibition.
Like any tourist we decided to get the free bus. It’s a great service that travels quite some distance around the city in a clockwise and anticlockwise direction.
Next stop the wonderful Adelaide Markets. If you visit Adelaide these markets are a must. We explored each aisle. Coffee and a pastry called so a visit to Skala
We stopped for lunch at a delightful Colombian restaurant. The waitress was just gorgeous and before we knew it we had a Pisco sour in our hands and we were ordering some tapas.
A great lunch. We just wish we were here Friday night for their live music with dancing.
Back home on the free bus with a few bags with fruit ‘ vegetables as well as a gorgeous frittata – in case we get hungry!
Oh and a lovely bottle of Pinot Noir.
