We’re experiencing our third day in Hobart, a blustery, on-again/off-again rainy day with lots of wind. People in Hobart keep apologizing for the weather, to which we respond, “Well, we’re not shovelling it, so it’s just fine with us!”
Our infatuation with Tasmania and Hobart continues – what a glorious corner of the world! Today, we explored fabric shops and artisan studios at the Salamanca Arts Centre. Tomorrow, we plan take a boat to the famously quirky MONA (Museum of Old and New Art), followed by a trip to the Port Arthur Historic Site on Friday and a stroll through the Salamanca Market on Saturday. Needless to say, my camera is working over time!
The photos: four photos from our trip to the Blue Mountains west of Sydney on Sunday (Thanks, Rob, for such a great trip!) plus six photos from Hobart. Enjoy!
