Day 103

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.

Day 48

Saturday 18th April

Woke to a lovely sunny day, I was up early and went for a bush walk with in the grounds and came across heaps of signs, one I have posted, the rest were telling about the Bandicoot, wallaby, Echidnas, etc, was very interesting. After breakfast went to check out the beach, the kids have gone into some markets that they wanted to check out, both being chef’s and cooks that is great for them. The airport is right by the sea, watching a plane come into land as if it is going to hit the tree tops is quiet interesting.
