Adelaide’s Elder Park with Zeb and Eider Duck

Our time in Adelaide is almost over, so we decided to take the free city bus to Elder Park.   This sign inside the bus shows the support for Adelaide’s athletic teams.

Support for the team and the fans.

We left the bus near the Adelaide Oval.   This artistic design behind the stage caught our eyes.

Crossing the bridge, we reached Elder Park, on the River Torrens.

We also saw some very curious pelicans.   This one wants to know what he purchased at the toy store.

Anything for me?
