      Why I live here part 2

      Pasted the explanation from part 1 in here!

      The saying goes that "a picture tells a thousand words".

      I took some pictures of my local area (Port Noarlunga and Christies Beach) with the intention of sending them to prospective guests (It goes without saying that I rent out properties to migrants and holiday makers) so that they could see what the area has to offer either for a short stay or settlng longer term roots with their new lives in Adelaide.

      I am going to load the pictures on the site with a little explanation attached to them showing what's around me, why I live here and the benefits of establishing a new life this side of the world in Adelaide. When it comes to Port Noarlunga and Christies Beach you really do have "everything on your doorstep". That's the reason that so many new migrants have moved to the continually developing suburbs of Hallett Cove, Christies Beach, Port Noarlunga, Seaford etc.

      It would be great if other people added to this thread showing what's around in their suburbs: Seaford for example. Some pictures of the northern suburbs would add to the big picture of what Adelaide has to offer so please post away...let's see what your area has to offer new arrivals in their first few weeks and thereafter.

      Hi Tamara,
      a wee bit of the reason I live here is because I was lucky enough to book one of your holiday rentals and then completely fell in love with the area :)

      Hi Tamara

      Hope your well.

      One common point in all of you photos which makes things look so much better, it occurs in the top 1/2 of your pictures and throughout is a nice rich deep blue colour. Apart from a couple, not a cloud in the sky!!

      McLarenvale is a stunning place. My sons girlfriend lives there on a farm. It's 9km away from my house in Port Noarlunga if you take the River Road shortcut. I could quite happily retire there...

      Hi,
      Most of these pictures are a year old but a few are more recent.

      I take the grandkids to Jubilee park all the time but it's difficult rounding them up to leave if i'm alone!

      More recent pictures of Jubilee park are:












      The Onkaparinga river runs past the park and you can launch canoes from the site as well.
      3 minutes by car from my house.
