... of the blog comes from the song Omaha by the Counting Crows. With lyrics like "roll a new leaf over" and "it's the heart that matters", I think it refers to change, finding meaning and the circle of life. Most of our travels will also be through middle America, which is more of a cultural reference than a particular area. You can listen to it here:

... up. After some embarrassment he turned to me as I walked passed and said, 'I think that's because I was looking at you love!'. Haha! I stopped at Harvest, the Launceston farmers market and ended up with a jar of local manuka honey and having a long chat with the maker of Blue Penguin wines. I felt obliged to try the wines, it would have been rude not to, and even ruder not to buy any! Having dropped my purchases and bundle of info back at ...

... ll find Tamar Valley wines in our local grocery store anytime soon. The wineries seem to be almost all small operations, and as one of our servers explained to us, exporting to the United States doesn't work well for them because most Americans don't want to spend more than $10-15 on a bottle.

After our light lunch, we made our way to Ninth Island, passing a lot of beautiful scenery along the Tamar River as we did so. Our final stop was ...

... for a wine tasting and cheese platter on this sunny but chilly morning. Next we drove back over to Christmas Hills raspberry farm for a delicious lunch in their sunny café. We just had time for a quick cheese tasting at Angrove cheese factory before we took Jake back to Beauty Point and the late shift at the factory. After a big farewell hug we headed south along the Tamar River to Launceston and our favourite "B &B" at our dear friend Julie's house. ...

... time to check out Ben Lomond.
We boarded the small boat - The Lady Launceston and headed out from the wharf. Launceston is set at the junction of three rivers - the North Esk, South Esk and Tamar. The three rivers are represented on the city flag.
We started out cruising along the North Esk River viewing the waterfront units and restaurants along Home Point Parade. As it wasn't raining, we went out to sit at the front of the boat to get the best views for ...

    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.
