Well what a weekend we've had! On their Australian and NZ tour,Mrs & Mrs Armchairdetective (I'll shorten to TADC now)flew over here to Adelaide to see us for a few days. Our friendship started 10 years ago when we bumped into each other on an old Usenet forum.After that we were always bumping into each other on forums. Knowing they wanted to meet up and have a peek at Adelaide we threw open the doors of Tyke Towers - we've never met but knew they would be lovely people. Well we were not wrong. We've had a ball,not stop yakking,going out and drinking. We all went out on the boat on Saturday,very busy at the launch ramp and perfect,calm conditions.Mrs TADC was the only one of us to catch a fish - a one eyed Pufferfish,sure it just committed suicide but don't tell here that:biglaugh: On our return the dolphins decided to show up,so lucky to see then - camera clicking away like mad. Boy was it busy when we returned to get our boat out at the ramp.Must admit I lost my temper with two women who pushed in front of the 18 boats waiting politely - my first case of "Ramp rage" - they deserved it though! Had a great get together on Sat night here at home, just a small bunch of us so Mr & Mrs TADC could meet everyone ( sorry to everyone else we all know).Ended up the wrong end of a lot of port and staggered to bed at around 2.am. Sunday saw us having a drive around the center of Adelaide and then in the afternoon a drive along the beaches of South Adelaide.A couple of calls to do a spot of wine tasting too! Sun night was lovely- we went down to the Victory Hotel for a great meal (highly recommend it) and watched the sun go down. Well,they are off on an adventure on the Great Ocean Road now,just seen them off this morning. Wish we'd have had more time together but they are covering a lot of miles here. Once again,a pleasure to meet Mr & Mrs TADC,we thoroughly enjoyed their company. I know they are quite taken by South Australia know. Who knows - they might be back.................................
