Port Adelaide Docks


Another photos from yesterday at Port Adelaide docks before we went to the main beach front where tourist visit.  I've mentioned on my first entry how it takes time while we are looking for the right road to reach on the Port Adelaide center, first we end up on this Port Adelaide docks were heavy equipment on the sea operates like the crane transfering big rocks on the big container ship. 
It's funny how I had a silly conversation with my hubby because I told him we are getting lost, I told you to follow the road sign but you keep on driving , you have a gps but your not using it.  There is an overpass bridge further down there maybe we can access on a side street but we can't because it's no through road, we are trapped now waah. We are behind the Port Adelaide Center where the Flea Market is. My hubby said tome, you can now take photos here it looks beautiful, nice views, we are surrounded by water and we can see those ships. I said how can I capture them if you won't stop the car and park somewhere, he had a laugh at me as I'm getting grumpy, how many time we are on wrong direction who can't I get grumpy! Meee grumpy? Never lol. But then I thank him because if we are not lost we can't have these great photos. I told him, we need to get lost always maybe we can end up to unexpected fantastic place. Sometimes those silly arguments make us more closer and stronger bonding and after we recall the moments we just look and laugh on each other.

 My hubby was interested to get inside on this area to see the front view of the ship, I told him I think we can't come in because there is a gate, it means not open for everyone but when we start to go back to find the main center, he really stop in front gate of this private property area and read who are authorized to enter, he is still hoping to get inside.lol

We saw this passenger ferry cruising and thinking it will dock on the center and I was right, the ferry boat had a 2 hour site seeing and dolphin cruise as I inquire when we are on the center. Hopefully next weekend will come back again and have a cruise to experience the fun and watch dolphin, its' only affordable you can also avail lunch package on board.

Rummaging around the docks of a city is a fascinating past-time. I like the look and sound of that ferry and the trips that it offers. We have something similiar on Sydney Harbour and I took a ride on a small tourist ferry last week. Thank you for showing me around Port Adelaide.

Great shots. Sounds like it was a good day - and your attitude about getting lost is good. Some of life's best discoveries come from unexpected adventures.
