Varied Weather, Varied Nature, Varied Places, Tasmania

First you have the view from Mount Wellington, close to Hobart, on a cloudy, rainy day. Below is the view from the … Continue reading Varied Weather, Varied Nature, Varied Places, Tasmania

Hellyer Gorge, Gondwanaland, Tasmania

We had planned our route in advance when driving through Tasmania and were up in the northwest heading towards the Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park. In doing so we ended up at Hellyer Gorge, more or less by accident. When we saw the not so imposing sign at the roadside, we nevertheless had … Continue reading Hellyer Gorge, Gondwanaland, Tasmania

A Day Cruise on the Gordon River, Strahan, Tasmania

We planned to have an exciting day on the Gordon River onboard the Lady Franklin and had chosen The Captain's Premier Upper Deck seating with the company of the Captain as a guide. We chose this way to travel just from reading the description on the net. What was on offer sounded pretty good to us. The Captain's Premier Upper … Continue reading A Day Cruise on the Gordon River, Strahan, Tasmania

Old and New Houses, Tasmania

I will start with a barrack in ruins from the days when convicts were allocated to slave away for the elite in their agricultural endeavours. This ruin is located at Cape … Continue reading Old and New Houses, Tasmania

It's only 30 meters wide at … Continue reading Tessellated Pavement, Eaglehawk Neck, Port Arthur, Tasmania

Do You Write for Profit or Pleasure?

I write for pleasure and have done so for many years. I haven't had the right inclination to try and get published. However, recently I completed my latest story and just have to give it hope. I've also started on a sequel where I'm up to more than 24,000 words right now. Yes, it's  going great. When I dream … Continue reading Do You Write for Profit or Pleasure?

First blog post

This is my very first post. You know what? I just spent hours trying to set up this page, not realising that I should have acknowledged my email address before the program worked and could be saved. That's what you get for not thinking. It's late now, around 3.30 am and I need to go to bed. I will continue this, maybe tomorrow.
