No matter where you go in the world, something that is always remembered is those beautiful sunsets. These sunsets can be so striking that they are etched in your mind. They are something to be treasured and one of the many of God’s most precious gifts.

Hopefully before I leave this most beautiful world of ours I’ll be able to share with you some of the most beautiful sunsets that I have been able to capture. Until then I’ve searched the web and have come up with the top 10 most beautiful Adelaide sunsets. Naturally they’re about Adelaide because that is what ScenicAdelaide is all about 😉

Ten Most Beautiful Adelaide Sunsets


As I said at the beginning of the post I found, all except for one, all of these images on the net. I thought it only fair that I link to those sites in order to give them the credit that they deserve.

  • WeekendNotes has a beautiful sunset at Hallet Cove as well as other beautiful sunsets.
  • Mannum Falls and the Semaphore sunset can be found on Adelaide Now.
  • The beautiful rural sunset in Adelaide hills was found on Travel Freak.
  • The stunning Adelaide Oval sunset was found on Independent. You may well remember my Adelaide Oval post
  • Strangely enough the Australian Bridal Affair hosted the Glenelg Golf Club photo.
  • We can thank the Port Lincoln Times for the Lower Inman Valley shot.
  • The beautiful Lyndoch sunset came from Valley Imagery.
  • The Seppeltsfield vines shot is spectacular and can be found at the South Australia website. I love this image even though the sunset played second fiddle to the vines.
  • Inspire has a lovely Brighton Jetty sunset. I mention the Brighton Jetty in another of my posts.
  • Bush Heritage takes us bush to see the beautiful sunset at Boolcoomatta Reserve.

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you did, please share it with your friends and if at all possible I’d love it if you could head over to YouTube and give it the thumbs up.

 

 

Ages ago I wrote about Morialta Falls and about how beautiful it was. Lately I’ve been exploring some other great walking trails in our beautiful Scenic Adelaide. The sudden urge to get fit was brought upon by my Fitbit Charge HR, a birthday gift from my kids. More about the Fitbit later on in the post! This post is about another great place for walkers and cyclists alike. The place is called Cobbler Creek Recreation Park and its full of different trails. My favourite is the Porosa Trail.

According to South Australian Trails the Porosa Hike is about 6.5k’s should take about 2.5 hours. All I can say is they must have taken it pretty easy to have taken them that long. I walked the Porosa Trail the day after Christmas because I wanted to burn off some of those Christmas calories. I took some highlights of my walk of the Porosa Trail which you can see below.

Porosa Hike  Perfect For Burning Calories

The Porosa Trail comes with a lot of different routes. The video shows the one that I prefer which leads you to Teakle Ruins, down to the creek bed past the Trevalsa Ruin and then back to the Smith Rd car park. At the end of the video I reveal some stats of my Porosa Hike cutesy of my Fitbit app. It also shows you the exact route I took. Because of some backtracking and adding on another little track I walked a total of 11.17 k’s and I did it in a little over two hours.

I did the walk again today and this time I didn’t stop to take photos and stuff and as you can see from the image below I walked even further and did it in under two hours.

You’ll also notice from the video that a lot of the times I was huffing and puffing and that’s because I believe you’ll burn more calories by going beyond the leisurely walk.

In the video when coming to the creek bed I crossed it to continue my walk. In todays Porosa Hike I decided to take the track to the right of the Creek bed. Man, all In can say is that a lot of the track is more suited to bloody mountain goats than hikers 😉  As you can see from the image it took me almost to Green Valley Drive before turning away. It was a pretty arduous addition to my hike but I don’t regret it at all because the views made it worthwhile. I intend to do the same route again on future Porosa Hikes.

Fitbit Charge HR A Great Motivator

If you’re wanting to improve your health then walking is a great way to do so, not to mention it can also improve your fitness level. If you’re laking motivation the I suggest you get your hands on a Fitbit. My Fitbit Charge HR also monitors my heart rate as well as having other great features. This includes telling the time, monitoring my sleep giving a whole lot of statistics via the Fitbit app on my Smartphone. During my walk it will give me an update every kilometre telling me how long it’s taken and my average pace. As I like to keep my pace under the 10k’s per second I will pick up my pace whenever it gets too close to that goal.

You can also compete with other friends who have a Fitbit which is another great motivator.

If you’re looking for a new place to take more than just a leisurely walk then I highly recommend tackling some of the great trails, like the Porosa Trail, at the Cobbler Creek Recreation Park. The park is named after William Peddler III, one of the early settlers in the region. William happened to be a shoemaker, also known as cobbler, ergo the name.

The Teakle Ruins below is definitely one of the highlights.

Have you done the Porosa Hike? If so what did you think of it?

In my last post I told you about that remarkable Stunt Motorbike crew that wowed the crowd with their freestyle motorcycle prowess. While those guys were truly remarkable the video clip I’ve posted here today is just as remarkable. It’s about another four blokes only this time they’re on four wheels and not two. They’re driving hi powered utes, specifically Toyota Hilux’s

These guys are all about precision driving and I’m sure they had to practice as much as the guys on the motorcycles did, although they probably didn’t suffer as many broken bones as stuff if they got it wrong. Except maybe if they hit each other when they did those particular manoeuvres at high speed, as you’ll see in the clip.

The Toyota Hilux Precision Drivers

Like I’ve said before, there is so much to see and do at the Adelaide Royal Show! Don’t forget, if you liked this post, please share it with your friends. If you liked the video please head on over to YouTube and give it a thumbs up to show your appreciation. 🙂
