The family minus the one who was working took a trip into the city last night to check out the Dark Mofo excitement. We didn’t enter the Winterfeast section but trekked about on the waterfront. Head over here to see more pictures. Next year we need to be way more organised and do more of the activities.
Despite the weather turning cold and wet again we went off to town to check out the Tall ships that are in town for the week. While not getting may decent pictures I tested out my skills and the camera to see if I could get this picture. I quite like this, some lines visible, so a vague reference to the topic.
Today is the conclusion of my photo essay of The Wooden Boat Festival including other scenes around Hobart.
I hope you enjoyed this, as much as I love showing people where I live and how beautiful it is. 🙂
It was just the two of us. Mini date day. Ok, not the most romantic of ‘dates’ but with hubby being FIFO and having three kids busy with social and work lives, any time we get together alone is good.
Where did we go. The Wooden Boat Festival.
We spent an hour or so here yesterday (Friday, without my camera) with our eldest before doing birthday things with number 2. (Happy birthday K, for the first few years you were definitely a whole new experience, but 14 years of your gorgeous smile is worth every minute!)
Today (Saturday) I got my camera “so you can get your pictures” – hubby. Mind you, it is now Monday and I am only just getting round to posting.
The wooden boat festival is on bi-annually and is a mecca for all things boat orientated. From the smallest dinghy to surfboards to the largest sailboat. If it can used on the water they have it here. And then there are the books, and other merchandise, displays, engines. The list goes on. Oh and don’t forget the food stalls, ice creams and coffee and lots of seafood stalls. Of course.
Yesterday they had boats from the smallest to the very largest of all – a cruise ship was berthed.
After parking we walked through the city and headed towards the water, playing tourist and asking pictures along the way. Of what? Some of the heritage (?) beautiful buildings we have here in town.
This will be a two part post as I have so many pictures, they will be mixed up, so stay tuned for the next instalment.
Have a great day and I’ll sail past tomorrow with some more pictures 🙂
