With the traditional Easter Adelaide mass exodus about to begin, the Fleurieu Peninsula will soon be overrun by metropolitan Adelaide’s middle class, creating chaos at seaside towns’ beaches, bars and bakeries.
One Adelaide woman has taken the step of leaving work a few days early to ensure she can grab a few pies and honeysticks for her family come Easter Sunday lunch.
‘I hope I don’t miss out this time’, said Agnes Saint of St. Agnes ‘My husband and the kids are coming down on the weekend, so hopefully I’m served and can join them for Sunday lunch’.
Equipped with a tent, sleeping bag and rations, Agnes remains optomistic.
‘It’s moved a bit since I got here. I can almost see the bakery now, which is a good sign’.
When Adelaide Mail reporters informed her that current estimates predict she wouldn’t make the front of the queue by Sunday, Agnes replied ‘Oh no, I’m not lining up for this Easter Sunday, don’t be silly! I just hope they haven’t run out of pasties by 2023′.
