    Leaving Launceston

    April 23, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Left our luxury accommodation to head up the eastern side of the Tamar River to Georgetown and Low Head lighthouse. Delightful historic place with old maritime cottages for rent. We thought this side much nicer than the west side. We even had to cross over the Tamar on the Batman Bridge just to say we had done it.
    Headed to St Helen’s via Bridport for a scallop pie for lunch on the foreshore. Yum.
    To Scottsdale, Derby and then Pyongyang’s to the cheese factory - ended up buying cheese and a chilly bag to hold it all!!! Then on to the Pub in a Paddock where Priscilla the pig likes a pint or two. A kiwi publican running this unorthodox pub in the middle of nowhere, so funny.
    Lots of beautiful countryside before we hit St Helens and our two bedroom cabin, very nice. Took off again for the Bay of Fires north of St Helens on the coast. Wow, just beautiful. Then dinner at a very new restaurant on the waterfront, seafood pasta, Yummy.
