From Santiago, Chile we flew to Adelaide, Australia to spend some time with two friends I met whilst studying in Colorado in 2004/5. We stayed with the lovely Kyra who I hadn’t seen in 6 years!! Kyra, her brother Micheal and their cute cute cat, Oli, kindly put up with us for a couple of weeks and showed us around South Australia.
We spent our first week camping at Moana beach, down on the Fleurieu Peninsula. From there we visited different places along the coast and embraced the aussie lifestyle by drinking iced coffee and beer, eating pies and BBQ’s and soaking up the sun, sea and surf!
Café Blue is a café right on the beach front at Moana itself. At first glance it reminded me of one of the many seaside cafes in England, however going in I was surprised that it was so expensive! This was our first exposure to how expensive Australia has become – especially as the dollar is so strong at the moment. We paid roughly $AUS 18/20 for a breakfast that morning – ouch! Luckily the food was really really good and large portions so this made it better! I had eggs benedict with smoked salmon instead of ham, and James and Chris had the large breakfast. This is a nice café to go for a breakfast or lunch in the area, but probably not somewhere for every day on a camping break!
