I found this bracelet in an old jewellery box. My Aunty Robin brought it back from England for me when I was young - can't remember exactly, but I think around 5 or 6. I was so thrilled to have something from so far away and to have a relative who's travelled OVERSEAS! And in 2 week's time, I'll be there! ...

... the cold westerly made it feel more like low teens. The peleton worked well together with riders rolling around at the front to share the load into the wind. We have been warned about the amount of roadkill we will see in Tassie and we got our first "taste" of it today with plenty of smelly, rotting (and fresh) carcasses along the way. Lakey (the mechanic who is following in the van) was accused of stopping and collecting a fresh roo ...

We did make it home and then spent the next few ...

We came back to our inn for some R&R, and then went out to explore the city a bit more and sample Tasmanian beer, a source of pride for the people here. Launceston and Hobart, the two biggest cities in Tasmania, have rival breweries, and we are taking it upon ourselves to judge the varieties for ourselves.

... We then headed up the Tamar River to view the Old Launceston Seaport which is now just an old jetty, before cruising to Kings Wharf to view historic vessels and Launceston's delightful riverfront precinct. It was here we saw the Gordon River Cruises ferry that we went on during our visit to Tasmania last time. We were told is was off being serviced and now here we were viewing it dry docked in Launceston. It was bizzarre seeing the ferry we were on two years ago on the ...
