We had such a wonderful holiday. Tasmania is so lovely and we we saw so many places at their best. The roses and rhododendron trees are to die for. In all we travelled 2,500+ kms, ate some wonderful seafood and had a ball. It was a holiday of many highlights:
Meeting Sarah and Dennis in Launceston on our first night. Sarah and I have been internet buddies for quite a few years now. We also met up with Sarah, Kristy and Rosanne for breakfast on our first Saturday - so lovely to be able to chat to and laugh with these girls in person. None of us thought to take a photo.
On the Sunday we drove to Burnie - Vix kindly invited the 4 of us plus a bunch of patchwork friends to her house for a bbq. Was fabulous - we stayed way too late.
We visited (amongst other places) Deloraine Craft Fair, Cradle Mountain:
Strahan (harbour cruise), Cygnet (bought a Saltbox Mercantile Christmas Tree):
Hobart (Salamanca Markets), Bicheno (penguin tour), St Helens, Bridport plus wineries, cheese/berry farms and every patchwork shop we could find along the way. This picture shows some of my fabric loot purchased in Tassie (I like collecting background fabrics).
What a fabulous holiday. We all loved Tasmania and are planning our next trip down south. Great food, weather, wine, shopping and lots of friends (old and new) to meet.
