Trip Day 3 (Part 1): Cradle Mountain

This morning the weather looked better, but that was just an illusion, and by the time we’d had breakfast, it was looking pretty ordinary. Juniordwarf was thrilled with the all-you-can-eat buffet style breakfast. He said to Slabs, ‘you didn’t tell me about this!’ and Slabs had replied that he’d...

Holiday Day 2 (Part 2): Cradle Mountain

If you know anything about Tasmania, you’ll probably have heard of Cradle Mountain.  It’s one of our most well-known landmarks and is a hugely popular area for visitors. I’d not been there since I was in high school (so you know, about 12 years ago), when our family spent...

Tahune AirWalk

Slabs and I went to the Tahune AirWalk  many years ago, pre-Juniordwarf. We thought he might like to go there, so after talking about it for ages, we finally picked a weekend and went. The Tahune AirWalk is about 28 km from Geeveston in the Huon Valley. It’s located...

12 of 12 April 2014

12 April 2014 was a Saturday. It’s the weekend before Easter and leading up to the last three days of school for the term. I’m tired. After the Walk in her Shoes challenge ended, I couldn’t manage to get out of bed in the mornings to go for a...

12 of 12 february 2014

12 February 2014 was a Wednesday, two days after a Public Holiday. This week is the second week of school and I’m still trying to get myself back into the routines. I’m struggling. 1 of 12 – The sun rose. 2 of 12 – Juniordwarf’s current obsession is the...

Bruny Island – day 1 (part 2)

My criteria for a campsite are quite simple. I like my comforts. Specifically, I like to stay somewhere with an “amenities block”. I have done roughing it camping (aka Proper Camping) in the distant past, so to distinguish that from what we normally do, I shall refer to our...

sunday selections: hunting the fagus

Today’s post is a Sunday Selections post for River, which I haven’t participated in for ages.  One thing that wasn’t on my 100 things to do in 2013 list but should have been because it’s something I’d wanted to do for ages, and that is to go and see...

Lake Dobson

I’m linking up to Kim’s Sunday Selections at Frogpondsrock today. Last time we went to Mt Field National Park we drove the 16 km road to Lake Dobson but we didn’t have a good look around. Monday was a public holiday, so we decided it might be nice to...

P365 – Day 185 – winter trees

It’s winter. The trees have lost their leaves. I feel I should write some evocative words about winter and bare trees and overcast days, but after another day of trawling through files for answers I don’t think I’m going to find, the words aren’t there. Maybe I need to...
