Himejii Gardens

Oh what might have been; back in March we were about to leave for Japan for a 2 week holiday when disaster struck the country. We ultimately chose not to go.

Here in Adelaide we have a small sampling of Japanese culture at the Himejii Gardens on South Terrace. Adelaide formed a sister city relationship with Himejii in 1982.

Red Moon

Very early this morning I arose to view a lunar eclipse. The sky was partially cloudy, but luckily it cleared for a while to get a good view.

June Theme Day: Under Construction

A new bridge is being built to replace the old King Street Bridge at Glenelg. This project commenced in March and is due for completion in December this year at a cost of $9 million. The first half of the bridge has been demolished and this week pylons are being erected.

The bridge links a small peninsula at North Glenelg. During the construction period motorists have to detour several kilometres and boats (including mine) on moorings near the bridge have been temporarily located. Come on December!

Today is City Daily Photo bloggers' theme day: Under Construction. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
