Scenic hallet Cove

My 1st ever own short trip in Adelaide...haha.
It's just 2 or 3 days after xmas....haha.
I more like to look at the vending machine here in adelaide, perhaps the bottles are display inside neatly...whaaha and offers a variety of choices.
Inside the train....well, as i said before, one type of ticket does it all.......no need to queue up to buy another ticket like what we had in KL......have to buy , rapid kl, lrt, monorail.............SAID NO to tat all, coz one ticket can use for all types of transports.
You can even buy your own ticket in the train, convenient isn't it??

Leaving from the Adelaide train station...

Here, you get to see these stop post, duno wat exactly it is call.....where car has to stop when a train is crossing over........and i just like to look at them...wahaha.

Pretty isn't it?? Sea at a few steps away.........

The other side of the train scene..wahaha.
Awesome view isn't it??

Finally i have to get down...hehe.

It's hallet cove......yeah!!! It's just roughly 30mins train ride to get to such a cool place!!! I first saw this place when i took the train to Norlunga centre to my co mum's house during boxing day... and immediately it attracted me to come over here!!! Hehe

One have to go through an underground tunnel beneath the rail track to reach the other side....to the beach and coastal line!!!!

Cool rite??? Imagine if you owned a house by the coastal or beach area...everyday you rise up to see the sea and get back from work and sit down to wait for the sunset??? Here, the skies are usually clear that you can expect good sunset view, unlike Msia, the cloud here have more mercy...haha.

Cant help but to take photo of these pretty post box and flowers around them....i guessed it's hard to find these in Msia...

WooooH!!!! Clear blue sky and green green grass.......i just love it !!!!

Haha, all using time mode to catch my photos...wahaha, just cant help but to snap a couple of me in such a beautiful place :).

Along the coast, you'll see this where it explains what inhabits this area, and the names of the birds, fish...are both in english and aboriginal language..:)

The city council here has taken some effort to improve and protect the rocky coastal here from errosion which is very good measure :)

Bother to sit down there and enjoy the cold breeze and warm sunshine??

There are certain areas that have planks for one to walk along this beautiful coastal line :)

albatross?? i duno....wahaha

Sea algae ....

Dead sea algae and rubbish containment area to trap rubbish and algaes...

It's just felt so AWESOME to look across the coastal at a higher spot.....LOVIN IT!!!!

There's also a conservation park at the other end of the coastal towards brighton town....which i explored.

This conservation park is well known in australia for its geographical landscape that dates back to duno how many thousands of year when australia was rising from the sea! All these special and unique Geographical landscape are different rock formation and layers ....

Ooo!!! dry and barren, wahah. This's how it looks like when you explore in summer season :)
Geographical landscape 1......ripples

Just thought of taking the picture of this old couple holding hands...wahaha, the older they are the closer they are, it's amazing to see old couples like them.....traveling around and supporting each other :)

Dried grass everywhere.....Ooooo, a long way to trek still...wahaha.

Geographical landscape 2....the Amphitheatre
Amphitheatre from afar...

Geographical landscape 3....the sugarloaf....
funny and unique look, isn't it???

View of sugarloaf from afar :)

Saw the other end?? i walked from the middle to that other end and from that end walk to this end...wahaha. But i enjoyed every bit of it :)

Long way to hike.....but the view just make you tireless!!!

Geographical landscape 4....

Enjoying myself :) wahaha. Really love this place....you dun get this kind of place in Msia....except mayb bako national park, but still it's different.

Geographical landscape 5....down at the beach where there is sthg called black rock or wat at the cliff...i'm just not into rocks, wahaha. Mayb seng keong might bother to go down there and study them :)

Geographical landscape 6....

Haha, at last the end of the hike and trek....it's approximately 3km ++, and took me 2-3hrs to travel from one end of the conservation park to the other end :) It could have bben faster, but taking picture, adjusting camera....etc takes time ;)
The coastal line doesn't end here actually, but stretches on and on..........to brighston, west beach, gleneg....etc. SIMPLY AWESOME!!! Seen people jogging here, hope to do so someday when i'm more free....wahaha!!!
Nothing beat this so far...even looking at the picture....offers calmness and peace :)
