Andrew with a snake

Today we decided to go into Adelaide. - Hindmarsh Square to be exact.

On the way we called into a pet store as I needed to buy new cushions for the dogs beds. While we were there, Andrew got to fulfill another thing on his wishlist. Andrew got to hold a snake. It was only a very small one but fascinating. Andrew is now discussing buying one. The biggest problem is knowing some one willing to feed the snake when we are on holiday. Oh well, some thing for Andrew to think about.

Then we continued to Hindmarsh Square. After having a cuppa in a cafe, we had a look at a set of 5 sculptures that were there on a tempory council grant. Very strange.

On the other corner there are some more permanant sculptures. A flip/flop, a clothes peg, fish bones, a dog bone and a garden tap with hose.

On the other corner there was a pond, with no water, I presume because of water restrictions.  There were just a number of cubes. No explanation of what they were.  There were 3 aboriginal gentlemen sitting on the grass. It was there first trip to Adelaide, they were from Tenannt Creek which is in the Northern Territory.  I had been trying not to get them in the photos as I didn't want to upset them but I don't think they would have minded. I think one of the reasons they started talking to us was because they thought we were tourists too.

Well that is 3 of 4 corners. There was nothing on the 4th corner. All in all, we have had a lovely day.
