  • Day12


    November 21, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Heute haben wir uns für umgerechnet 650 €, ein "good working-horse" gekauft. Der Mitsubishi Magna Wagon ist 26 Jahre alt - also gerade mal eingefahren 😁und sehr wichtig; er hat 2m Kofferraumlänge zum Schlafen!
    Das ältere Ehepaar von denen wir das Auto gekauft haben, war super nett und sprach auch ein australisches Englisch, das wir verstanden! Das "Formelle" gestaltete sich als überraschend unbürokratisch. Mit dem Kaufbeleg zum Tasmania Service und läuft die Karre auf uns. Fahrzeugschein, Brief usw. sparen sich die Tasmanier 😊

    The Shot Tower and Blackmans Bay

    March 19, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    We again carried on with our sightseeing driving along the coast, we went to the Shot Tower at Taroona, the tower was built by a Scotsman named Joseph Mair in 1870 to produce lead shot balls for muzzle loading sport guns.
    They have a small museum and souvenir shop at the base, so we purchased our tickets watched the short film about it history then entered the tower to climb to the top!
    As soon as we stepped through the door I said to Kay that there was no way she was going up the tower the steps are made of wooden slats which only seem to be about 12mm thick and with Kays fear of heights and her vertigo she wasn’t going to get far, so Kay went back to the shop to await her big brave Peter’s return from his heroic climb up the tower!!! Well about 3/4s of the way up big brave Peter decided that his concerns for how Kay was now feeling alone in the souvenir shop (not about how much she was spending mind) changed his mind about reaching the summit of this tower so turned around and descended the tower again (passing the 2 very brave ladies that had already made it to the tower top.

    After this we had Devonshire tea scones with jam (I had probably the worse cup of coffee ever).
    Then we travelled onto to Blackman’s Bay and move views of the coastline before heading back to the caravan we picked up some shopping.
