Adelaide Oval

We had a great few days at Rapid Bay. Plenty of swimming and just a few people down there so there was always someone to share a beer with. We were puzzled by a small plane that buzzed around the bay 2 or 3 times a day. We were later told it was a shark spotter plane. The sea here opens up onto the Southern Ocean which is where the great white shark lives. We were advised not to swim at dawn or dusk (wish someone had mentioned it earlier!).

At the weekend we returned back to Adelaide mainly to watch some of the Ashes test match – Australia/England. The Adelaide Oval is reputed to be one of the best venues in world test cricket and we had booked seats in the Chappel Stand for Sunday (day 3). More by luck than judgement we saw a great days cricket with one of the biggest crowds for more than 30 years (38,000). England batted all day, losing only one wicket. Kevin Pietersen got a double century and the Barmy Army were going crazy. The poor old Aussies didn’t have much to cheer about all day.

We moved back to the coast and listened to the rest of the cricket on the radio. Rain threatened to force the game to a draw but in the end the Aussies collapsed and England went on to record their first Ashes win at the Adelaide Oval since 1987.
