Day 105

Monday 15th June
Well we headed off a bit later than planned but ended up going for a drive up the west side of the Derwent River as far as Rosegarland, and it already was getting to late to see Mt Field NP, the fog is getting lower and clouding over more so crossed over the river calling into see a Hop drying building and the lady next to it gave us a run down on all the history, very interesting, the locals here in Tasmania are so open and helpful with there knowledge of their areas. The whole valley is so beautiful and in lots a ways is standing still, so nice to see. Saw the Zinc smelter, Cadbury’s chocolate factory across the river, saw the MR-1 boat which is Mona  Roma-1, traveling up river towards the museum. It was a day of reflections.
