Lazy Long Weekend

My son is doing a project on this guy for school and he wanted me to take some photo's.  He is Colonel William Light and he is responsible for the planning of Adelaide  the wonderful green belt that circles the city, the Park Lands.    

Here is the view from the hill where his statue is situated.  It affords views of Adelaide Oval, the city and the Adelaide hills

The kids enjoyed a run with the mutt down the hill.

We then drove to the city, where Light is buried.

My grandparents lived in Col Light Gardens which is the only suburb in South Australia that is completely Heritage Listed.  Being Heritage Listed means there are lots of rules about what you can and can't do to your property, including the colours you can paint your house and what kind of fences you can erect.

I forget how beautiful it is looking from Light's vision. He was a smart man wasnt he? lovely city surrounded by green. We are so lucky to live in such a wonderful city.

I hope your son does well on his project.
