Sunday morning walk to croquet

St John's Church in Halifax Street.

This morning was one of those beautiful Adelaide mornings.  As I ambled from home to the South Parklands, it was a mild 21 degrees, with a gentle breeze. Magic.

St John's Rectory

Street verges plant to roses, lavender and shrubs.

A pleasant place for a rest along the way.


Past interesting homes.


Home of the French Consul in Adelaide


A beautiful home and grounds


St Corantyn, built in 1891 by Charles Hornabrook.
The home was also owned by Sir John Lavington Boynthon for many years.


Ochiltree House, built in 1882 for John Rounsevell.
The home reflects a Victorian Italianate style with a French influence in the mansard roof.





South Terrace Croquet Club
 And my destination, the South Terrace Croquet Club.  What a lovely relaxed way to spend a Sunday morning.




Perhaps in a future post I'll let you in on the hidden pleasures of croquet.
