Come on a mini tour of some of my favorite places here in Adelaide South Australia
Star of Greece
The remains of the Star of Greece, a three masted, iron cargo ship wrecked at Port Willunga in 1888
I have been wanting to Photograph this wreck for along time and finally got the chance this week.
It was fantastic being there for the sunset over the wreck and was just and amazing experience, anyone wanting to read more about the history of the Star of Greece can find it here

Present and Future
(Adelaide City secret discovery Compton St. Edited Gimp 2.8)
(Copied from the plaque on the Building)
This small building was originally built as a house
By Edward Moore in 1871. A shopfront was added by the next owner,
baker Mathew Madge, in 1898-99.
Bert Edwards, one of Adelaide’s most colourful and notable citizens,
opened a tea room here in 1913.
It was immensely popular, particularly on Friday nights when the rear of the shop was used for the playing the then illegal game of two-up.

Thousands of years
Your secrets kept away
