    Hobart Tourists

    April 13, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Walked from Hotel to Salamanca Market downtown Hobart this morning. Lovely cafe for breakfast then a wander, magic place, best market I have ever been to.
    Back to pick up car then drove to Port Arthur, wow, what a place, wandered through the grounds and old penitentiary plus old houses, the history of this place and it’s convicts is amazing. Walked through the memorial garden that was created after the 1996 massacre of 35 people killed by a crazed gunman. One such person was Jason Winter of whom Mike & I knew slightly from his being a winemaker. Knew his father-in-law really well from Waihi Beach. Did a boat trip around the harbour and learnt more history of the convict life, great place.
    Big day tomorrow, watch this space!!! Lots of laughs today 🤪🤪🤪
