Which Way Adelaide Parklands
It has been some time since I have participated in Cee’s Which Way Challenge. It has been quite frustrating because it is one of my favourite photo challenges.This past winter I’ve so rarely been able to be out and about with the camera that I’ve had little opportunity to take new photos. These which ways were taken on my recent visit to Adelaide. I grew up in this city although it has been nearly fifteen years since I moved away from there. As I arrived in Adelaide the the flight path was over the city and I could see the Railway Station, Festival Centre and the surrounding parklands. I used to spend a lot of time around there so I thought it was about time that I visited again. There have been a lot of changes, the main one being this bridge across the River Torrens . The new walkway allows you to walk out of the railway station, convention centre or the adjacent Hyatt Hotel and across the bridge to Adelaide Oval to attend sporting events or concerts at Adelaide Oval or Memorial Drive Tennis Centre. I quite like this idea now that I have seen it.
When I lived in Adelaide I often used to take the path beside the river to walk from the station to my job in North Adelaide. I enjoyed it in the early morning when there would often be rowing crews practicing on the river. The path goes past Adelaide University where at that time I knew my sister would be working at her early morning cleaning job in one of the buildings and then past the zoo where I would hear the lions roaring as I went past. If I walked back that way after work I would see the “Popeye” boats taking people to and from the zoo and families out in the colourful paddle boats you can see in the foreground of thephoto of the river.
You make Adelaide sound so special. I’m glad you got to go back. 😀

I’ll go back again but only in the cooler months :-). The hot Adelaide summers were the main reason we left.
It looks like a lovely place to visit and stroll along these paths.
It was always one of my favourite places in the city when I lived there. Adelaide has a lot of lovely parklands around the city as it was designed that way.
