Starting and finishing at the Adelaide Railway Station on a relatively warm day, I took the train to Glanville, at the top end of Semaphore Road and meandered down to the sea, stopping for a coffee at Swedish Tarts, and window shopping in the many interesting stores along this long strip of shops.
Arriving at the mini-railway station, I stopped for a while to see the many Sunday outing families and delightfully excited children hopping aboard the train for the short ride along the coast to Fort Glanville.
Onwards along the lovely wide path towards the Largs Jetty and a short stroll to see if the air was a little cooler out to sea. The also loving restored Largs Pier Hotel, which no longer screams to the sounds of an early Cold Chisel.
There were championships on at the Largs Bay Sailing Club, so it was abuzz with families and impossibly small sailing dinghies. Onwards to the recently sold Police Academy, with its Sandhill fitness course nearby. The stretch of Norfolk Island pines that follows leads on to the marina developments at North Haven. An ice cream from the North Haven Kiosk, and then a final stroll past the North Haven Golf Club, and some thousands of new cars lined up on the Wharf, the journey ended at the Outer Harbour Railway Station.
Regular Trains (every thirty minutes on Sunday) mean that I just had time to help Russian ships mate, who had little English, navigate the railway ticket system and timetable, for his evening off in town. A very satisfying end to my 10km walk and a relaxed air-conditioned train ride back to the City for a well-earned beer before home.
