We landed really early in the morning and couldn't check into our hotel yet, so we went to Henley Beach. It's just outside of Adelaide and it's the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. The sand is so white and the water is completely clear. I left my camera in my friends car so the only photos I have are on my phone. We were there until about 11 in the morning and it was already close to 40 degree. We had a little swim in the ocean, which was actually the first ocean we swam in since being in Australia! We arrived in October and only went to Adelaide in February!
At 11we decided to go into Adelaide CBD, where our hotel was, and luckily we were able to check in early. We stayed at at the Majestic Rooftop Garden Hotel, just off of Rundle Mall. The room was pretty big with a super comfortable bed. The bathroom was aaaamazing. I could live there. The hotel was very fancy and seemed like a hotel we'd never be able to afford! We booked the hotel with booking.com. Breakfast would have cost us extra so we just went out and about for breakfast.
We also went into a pet store and looked at puppies. Too cute!
It's the most delicious chocolate I've ever tasted, and we did end up with a little chocolate splurge in the shop. There are also a few stores in Melbourne.
After the tour we went to the Glenelg Beach. Glenelg is another white sanded beach. The temperature was in the 30s that day so we actually had a chance to walk all along the beach and the area itself.
