We did it!!! We did the Lap of Tasmania!! We are back where we started from in Hobart and I absolutely love it here!!! It's so chilled out and the people are friendly.
We are staying at Lenna of Hobart, which was built between 1876-1880 by Harriet and Alexander McGregor. The original mansion which houses the reception, the bar, function rooms, offices and the McGregor Lookout is connected to the rooms of the hotel by a walkway. It's just perfect!! We are in room 38, overlooking Princes Park and the River Derwent.
We went for a walk tonight along the docks to the Drunken Admiral, a restaurant where I had the seafood chowder I have been after this whole trip!! It was delicious!!
There are so many buildings built by convict labour or from that time. This is such a beautiful historical city. Tomorrow I'm going to the Cornelian Bay cemetary to see the final resting place of my four times great grandmother Mary Ann Amelia Singer, nee Crumb. I'm still looking for evidence of the final resting place of her husband, John McDonald Singer, my four times great grandfather.Read more
