Do: Stay Heaps Good Adelaide

Well, Adelaide, it's been real. But now I'm moving. It's not you, it's definitely me. A new adventure awaits so it's time for a quick goodbye, a firm handshake and one final drink. Preferably a local drop.

I'm off to the motherland. London calling. And Edinburgh. And Paris. And Brussels. And Berlin. You get the idea.

So this is my farewell post. Farewell for now, at least. I'm not sure when I'll be back, but you can safely assume my first stop will be here.

Since starting up That's Adelaide, I've been blown away by the positive feedback, tweets, comments, reposts, emails, invites and general blogosphere niceness. Watching my stats page crawl, climb, rise and fall has been way more fun than it sounds. Thanks guys!

See you on the other side.

Icons: A Special Place

Let me tell you about a special place.

For every summer of my childhood that I can remember my family would pack the car to the hilt and head down to The Shack. When I say The Beach it only ever means one place. Aldinga.

I can't count the hours I have spent doing nothing but staring out at the magnificent horizon. Usually surrounded by fantastic family and friends.

Here is where the sun sets on perfect days. Where there is stillness. Where the year ends and we awake to new years and new beginnings. Here is where you know everything will be ok.

To me, Aldinga Beach represents so much more than sun, sand and surf.

Not everyone has a home, but I hope you are all lucky enough to have a special place that brings happy memories straight to the surface.
