March 2018, Adelaide, SA
We get an early start so that we can visit the Adelaide Central Markets. It seems to be a popular spot for breakfast and we manage to snare a table at Lucia’s Pizza & Spaghetti for a hearty breakfast. We buy Kessler chops and Weisswurst from Barossa Fine Foods.
The rain starts to drizzle again and it is quite muggy. We take a drive along the beachside suburbs admiring the houses. Polling booths are busy with voters queueing for the state elections and volunteers are cooking sausages. Every power pole supports one or more Coreflute election sign. We hunt down some red cabbage to go with the chops.
Back at camp over dinner the Kessler chops are delicious and (after weeks of tracking down ancestors) I ask Woody what his mob (the Cornish) have given South Australia seeing that the Germans have left such a legacy of wine, smoked meats and smallgoods. “Pasties!” he says. Hmm, I can’t argue with that.
