Day Seventeen - Chocolate & Views!

G'day all! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. Today was Day Seventeen of our road trip & it was a little quieter than the last few days. My folks, who are also road-tripping at the moment, arrived back here in the Adelaide Hills late Thursday after spending a couple of weeks in Western Australia. So today, after the morning was spent running a few errands, we all packed ourselves into Big Blue for a trip to not-too-far-away Stirling for afternoon tea at a specialty chocolate shop we'd been told about ... Red Cacao Chocolatier.

As well as a range of specialty chocolates, Red Cacao also has a coffee shop menu of tasty treats, most including some kind of chocolate.

Here's my treat. The drink was a salted caramel iced chocolate & the slice was YUMMO! :0) I can't actually remember what it was, though it included macadamia nut crumb base, passion fruit curd & white chocolate mousse. After we'd licked plates, spoons & slurped the last tasty drops from the bottom of cups & glasses, we drove to a lookout point to take in views of Adelaide ...

Hmmm ... As it turned out, it was quite hazy despite the fact it was a nice sunny day, so we could just make out the ocean. It showed us just how spread out Adelaide is.

My unwilling photo subjects! :0) we then piled back into Big Blue ... No mean feat considering we number some sizeable behinds amongst us! Tee! Hee! Hee!) & headed home for a bit of a lay-me-down before heading out for dinner tonight to help Mum & Dad celebrate their 51st wedding anniversary ... Which rolls around next week, but they wanted to celebrate while we were all in the one place.

And that was our low-key Saturday. Tomorrow is our last day here in the Adelaide Hills before we start winding our way home next week. We'll be sad to say goodbye to my Aunt & her Sweetie, but we have a few more adventures planned yet before we have to go back to pretending to be grown ups. :0) So ... Stay tuned & enjoy your Sunday. Til next time ...
