Saturday wanderings

It wasn’t quite raining, and not too cold so we got the wellies out, packed the dog into the car, and armed with cameras headed for a local shipwreck.

We walked around the point at the waters edge and returned an hour later – right in time to miss a small but heavy rainfall.

Another beautiful Autumn day in Hobart.
Yesterday at Bellerieve marina and this morning from Kangaroo Point lookout, Bellerieve.



I’ve taken loads of pictures today, there’ll be plenty to show off later.
Have a great day Jen ๐Ÿ™‚

Australia Day 2014

Yesterday was Australia Day, Jan 26th. Still a day of contention and BS. I’m not going to comment on any of that.
Each year at Kingston Beach – 30 mins north from us and 10 mins south from Hobart – they have the “Day on the Beach”.
Years ago it was all about the sand sculptures – which were amazing – now it’s a fun day out, beach cricket and volleyball, thong races (inflatable thongs, aka flip flops) with all the food, drinks and ย entertainment you can poke a stick at.
Hubby wanted to go along this year and while interested I didn’t the idea of walking for miles after finding a car park. Problem solved. ย Five kilometres up the road is the Sports Centre with oodles of parking. Bring in the double decker buses and for a small donation, park and ride with not traffic congestion.
In the end it was just myself and mr 9 who went.
I spent some time at the market along the road (gotta scout for prospective stall holders) while Mr 9 seemed happy to learn volleyball. And that’s where he spent most of the day. I had it easy.
Lots of pictures, met up with hubby and mr 14 who brought the bike for a spin, was sighted by, but missed meeting a fellow blogger and Hobartian (we’ve confirmed it was me she saw), got sunburnt, a long wait for the return bus, and finished off the day with a lovely bbq at my parents.

Sunday Photo Day

A few pictures to end the week with. My apologies if I’ve posted any of them before.
It’s been one of those weeks I wish I could say ‘Thank goodness for that’ but I can’t, as it all keeps going tomorrow. Not sure when it’ll stop either.












Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
