Another Visit to Bruny Island

On our first visit to Bruny Island, we only just got the the southern part of the island. This, naturally, demands a second visit to see the parts we missed the first time. To give you an idea of the changeability and locality of weather here, you can see to the west of us that there is a rainstorm on the mainland. Meanwhile, there's no rain where we are standing.

Out and About on a Saturday

Not far from us, a short ways south along the coast is the village of Margate. Here we find a curious shopping center. A large fraction of the shopping is located an old train that is parked on a length of track here. In this train is a restaurant, the Pancake train.

North Hobart

On one of our visits to North Hobart to see a movie at the State Theater, we did some shopping just to see what we could see. I took a few images to show you the colors we find when out and about.

Mount Wellington

When last we climbed (in our car, we're not silly!) to the top of Mount Wellington, it was winter and we were greeted by clouds and a brief snow squall. This time was entirely different: it was summer and we were greeted by clouds and a brief snow squall. See? Entirely different.

Blackmans Bay

Our house sit this summer in Tasmania is in Blackmans Bay. On one end of the bay is a rocky outcropping. Around the corner is a blowhole but we haven't been there yet.

Adventure Bay

Adventure Bay is on the north shore of the southern part of Bruny island, just south of the neck that joins the two parts. It is a beautiful and historic part of the island.


Today is our first full day back in North America. We are working to adjust to our new digs and relearning to drive on the right. We've ordered a new bed frame (the mattress is here and is doing its job already) and are working on opening a bank account. Soon you won't be able to tell us from a regular Washingtonian (?)
