Friday 12th June
Got up early and the day is very overcast but took the chance of cloudy but sunny as forecasted, and we are heading off down the Huon Valley as far as Southport. Stopped off at all the wee bays, art galleries, etc. I just love the free range chooks we see in the country side, they are in the most unexpected places. Beautiful scenery and no wind so it wasn’t to bad and no rain. Got very overcast on way home. All in all a very nice day. Just loved following the Huon River for most of the way, gave us some nice reflections. A lot of these photo’s were grab shots through the glass while driving, bit hard in city traffic to stop.
Bridge over the Derwent River in Hobart. The bridge in Hobart with Mt Wellington in back ground. Mt Wellington. Out of the traffic, now for some scenery. This is where we had morning tea at Franklin on the edge of the Huon River. A lot of old buildings are being used today for shops, galleries, etc, I loved the wheel in this photo. Huon River. As soon as I got over to the picnic table these ducks all came running, so funny. Heading towards Geeveston Free range chooks. Nice entry to the town of Geeveston. Had lunch at Dover. Driving around to Southport, the end of the tar sealed road south. Little beach holiday places right on the water. End of the line. On our way back caught some good lighting on these yachts. Another quick shot of the bridge at Hobart on our way home.
