In Hobart







Above: The Spirit of Tasmania in Port Melbourne, boarding the ship at 9pm, sunrise over Bass Strait, then a few scenes as we drove to Hobart yesterday.

We had a very smooth crossing over Bass Strait and we're now at our B&B, with Tricia, in Hobart. It's very peaceful here in a secluded valley surrounded by bush land with a large garden.  This morning we're going to Hobart for:

Sunday 6 March
11am Dymocks Hobart, Centrepoint Shopping Centre
Book signing
11.30am Fullers Books, Collins Street
Book signing

After that we'll have lunch somewhere and have a look around. We've been told there's a farmers market somewhere in Hobart so we might find that and buy some really good local food.  The main agenda however it to just relax and take it slow.

Thanks to everyone who send a comment. It's lovely to read snippets from friends when we're so far from home.  xx

  3. That's a big ship! It looks like Tasie is on the cusp of end-of-summer dryness and about-to-be autumn. Have a lovely day (hi Tricia!), we are kicking back here.

  6. Good to hear you had a calm crossing. Try to find time to wander around the Salamanca area, it has great old buildings, art, handmade things, cafes and eateries, some at the back of little arcades and lanes. I bought some lovely wool when I was there in early January.
    Hope you enjoy your time in Tasmania and don't run into cold weather.

  13. Looks like a lovely time to travel! The sky is blue; the grass is a lovely green; and, look! There are cows! Time with Trisha will be a treat after being on the road! I hope you find some wonderful fresh food, meet some charming kindred spirits, and enjoy the time away.

  14. I googled Tasmania the other day after reading the bog and looked at the Google images site - wow!! Incredibly beautiful there. I love the "on the road" shots - they help support my daydream that I'm in the back seat, riding along. Beth in MN

  16. I'd love to return to Tasmania for a road trip. How long did the ship take- I'm think that is a sunrise photo?? Safe travels.

  17. Sorry to have missed you while here in Tassie Rhonda. A rare opportunity at our house where the children didn't have sporting commitments to do some maintenance, namely my irrigation in my orchard and vegie garden. I hope you had a great turn out and enjoyed our tropical weather :-) Ali :-) from the hills of Sandfly
