Delighting in Little Things

Leaving Launceston behind, I am on my way back to Hobart for my flight out of Tassie this afternoon.  Surprisingly it's only a couple of hours drive from Launceston straight down to Hobart so I have plenty of time to stop off and see some sights along the way. The first one that catches my [...]

All Wheel Adventure

I was thankful for my early start this morning because as I drove out of Port Arthur, this is what greeted me.... I don't think I've ever seen anything so calm and pristine.  I was starting to realise exactly why everyone who visited Tasmania was bewitched by her beauty.  It was all around you, all [...]
