Tour Down Under 2018 Photos (Part 1)

Three paramedics in their green uniforms congregate at the McLaren Vale starting line in the crisp morning summer sun. Two are standing with one sitting on a yellow pushbike. Race spectators are gathering behind the blue, white and red barriers behind the paramedics.
Paramedics meet under the starting banner before the race:
Stage 5 McLaren Vale to Willunga via Aldinga
Last year was so hectic, I forgot to share my photos of the 2018 Tour Down Under where even the paramedics are on bikes! 

With little time to spare before the next Tour Down Under rolls around (10–20 January 2019), I've posted more photos, fewer words. Enjoy!

A Little Splash of the Surf Art Exhibition

The long, thin, horizontal banner is pinned beneath two windows on the side of an old limestone building. It reads: "SURF ART EXHIBITION Celebrating twenty five years of surf culture 14 December 2018 - 28 January 2019. Facebook: onkaparingacity.com/arts or 8326 5577 Onkaparinga Arts."  The Surf Exhibition logo appears on the left hand side of the banner.  The heritage building is painted cream on the top half with a heritage brown colour for the lower portion of the building and the roof guttering.  A blue horizontal stripe demarcates the cream and brown.  A blue sky is seen in the top left corner.
The Old Institute Building at Port Noarlunga displays a large banner for the Surf Art Exhibition

Come and look inside!
