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…

Travels along the Tamar

I was so excited to get out and make the most of my last couple of days in Tassie, that I didn’t sleep much.  Which, as it turned out, was just another bonus, because as I decided to take an early morning stroll nearby my hotel, these are the scenes that awaited me… If you looked…
