Balls of steel

Today all three girls were in child care, so we had the whole day to ourselves!
We decided to drive into the city center, so that I could say I've properly seen Adelaide. Although, we mostly looked through the shops, of course...

It was glorious sunny weather, but really windy and quite cold, brrrr! So walking down Rundle Mall (Australia's first pedestrian street mall) we had to take refuge in the many shops and boutiques.
We had some yummy salad for lunch and spent a few hours chatting over some nice coffee and cake. Shopping, chatting, coffee - what more can you ask for?

This is the "Mall's balls", as the locals calls them. Can you se Nina and me?

This is the best-known sculpture of the Rundle Mall, actually the proper name is 'The Spheres'. They are four meters tall and apparently a common meeting place along the pedestrian street.
