Winter at home

A travel blog entry by lotse37 on Jul 19, 2014

Joined TravelPod so that we can read the blog of our son-in-law Mark Rathmell, based on his current trip following the 2014 Tour de France.

But this does seem like a convenient way to keep a travel diary available to friends and family.

... certainly was a lovely peaceful ride across the river while we sat and watched some energetic people below jogging their way up the pathways to the top of the gorge. Once on the other side of the river we walked along a path that followed the river to take in the views below us and the surrounding gorge. Near the restaurant on the lawn we found a bench under a tree, ate our oranges and relaxed while we watched peacocks ...

... passed through the inspection area. We threw out another banana and two apples. What a waste! Once we walked through the inspection area, the woman working there politely explained to Jason that by eating the banana from Victoria state in Tasmania, he broke the quarantine since a fruit fly could have come over with the banana. Oops!

After collecting our luggage and getting our upgraded Audi rental car, we were out on the streets of Launceston, or ...

... October 27th We were woken up at 5:45am to prepare for disembarkation at 6:30. Not enough sleep!!! One of the first vehicles off the boat we drove bleary-eyed into Latrobe and snuggled under the covers again! A bit later Rod checked out the local farmers' market whilst I did a bush walk up and around the local hill. We called into Christmas Hills raspberry farm for some goodies before having a nanna nap at Egmont Reserve by the Mersey River. Drove east ...

... but we only have had a bit of drizzle which hasn't bothered us. Not too cold either but certainly need our warm clothes here.

The Gorge is very scenic and very well looked after with beautiful old trees, massive azaleas, trees ferns, resident peacocks, a suspension bridge and a wonderful chairlift which is the longest single span chairlift in the world. It wasn't busy and we had plenty of time to take in everything at the Gorge and ...

    Fabulous place to stay. Quaint with all the little touches which make you feel relaxed and special, including port and choccies on arrival and a well stocked breakfast pantry. The resident cats, birds and chooks make you feel at home as well. A quiet and peaceful oasis in the middle of a lovely city. Highly recommended.
