Surfing in the Southern Ocean
A wonderful rest day. Catching practice on the beach (this is a cricket, tour after all, even if we haven't played a match yet) and then surfing in the Southern Ocean. Next stop Antarctica. Well, body boarding actually, not the sort of thing an Aussie would call surfing, but big enough breakers to cause some alarm. Weather conditions? Still more Cornwall than Costa del Sol. The boys are now happily billeted and discovering Adelaide life as adolescents know it. We are certainly enjoying some wonderful hospitality.
