Touring Tassie

Just got back from a relaxing week in Tassie concentrating our exploration in and around Hobart. Can't wait to go back and travel around greater tassie - what a beautiful place.

We had a great week of craft kicked off with the Salamanca Markets and the IXL Galeries. Some fantastic artwork, craftwork, produce and some knitted output.

Green, moist and beautiful we had both warm days and snow (at the top of Mt Wellington).

We took a trip on a tall ship under sail and a fast boat to the Great Southern Ocean.

Wet and cold but well worth the experience.

Highlights for knitting was The Spindle Tree @ salamanca for yarn and knitted product. I returned a few times (staying just up the road).

I love the bookstores of Hobart made for browsing. Fullers in the city and The Hobart Book store @ salamanca being favourites.

We spent the better part of one cold day in a pub drinking and reading and the next wandering the botanic gardens. With plants from tropical to antarctic it was a great day.
