Missing Barry and Christine

We are feeling a bit flat today after Barry and Christine’s departure.

We pulled the back of the ute out and reorganised it so we could store the new generator in a position where we could run it without removing it from the ute.
This has worked fine and we now have everything in place to enable us to free camp.

It’s another magnificent warm, sunny and crystal clear day again and as Mount Wellington has not one spec of cloud around it we decided to take another run up there and get some photos of Hobart on a cloudless day.

Amazing view. Bit different than last time.

Couldn't see the edge with the cloud cover.

The view from the mountain is spectacular and makes you realise what a truly picturesque city Hobart is.

To the North, East and West the mountains stretch out making us aware of the extent of the rugged mountainous terrain that is Tasmania.

To the South we see the vast expanse of the Southern Ocean stretching for 2000 Km to Antarctica.

All the islands were so clear.

We decided to look at bookings on the Spirit of Tasmania and were surprised to find only one day with space available, ( 1st of May), and nothing else till late June.

We worked out a schedule and although we won’t be quite as laid back as we have been so far we can still travel all of the Tasmania we want to in the next 3 weeks and make the crossing back to Melbourne on the 1st of May.

So we now see an end time to our Tasmanian leg of our journey.
