A Humidity Break …

Although I much prefer summer to winter, and I don’t mind a bit of steamy weather, this summer seemed a little longer and more trying than usual.  So when a friend suggested a short trip to the cooler climate of Tasmania, it was immediately appealing.

We flew in from Sydney over the Tasmanian Wilderness …

Enjoyed the sights and tastes of Hobart …

Hugged a few ancient towering trees in the Huon Valley …

Wandered around the docks at Triabunna

Spent a day walking around the historic penal probation station on Maria Island

And left the island tired, slightly sunburnt but refreshed by our humidity break!

  2. We had a few days in Tasmania in 2014 – some lovely walks – the huge ancient trees are what I remember most – in Dorrigo, with you, as well as in Tasmania. Also enjoyed Salamanca market in Hobart! We were staying with Alison’s daughter-in-law’s parents.
