while staying in hobart, i enjoy the road i travel, it brings back lots of memories. though i have never lived here, full time that is, in the past few years i have been down her alot and always feel very much at home. the place and the people make me feel comfortable! today i travelled this well known road to battery point to meet a new friend for coffee and then up to the cottage and back 'home' ( my hobart home for the moment ). another beautiful day here, we did have some rain this morning, but the skies are blue and the sun has been beautiful.
this is what remains of the snow on mt wellington that fell last thursday.
loved this bare tree against the blue sky, there are many like it
i remember this little jetty at sandy bay beach from when i was really quite young, we used to go to the beach and my father's brother used to go down here flounder fishing. i can remember the sweet flavour of those fresh fish now. my uncle lived in derwent water avenue, just opposite this beach.
i remember this corner so well, lots of roast dinners and glasses of sherry were enjoyed in this street when the families got together in the good old days! now travelling along sandy bay road it reminds me of stories i have heard from long ago and i remember the houses and the water scenes, come with me !
i love these 'wedding cake' type houses, look at the pretty gates !
my mother always wanted an echium ( not sure if that is the correct spelling ) in our gardens because it reminded her of her childhood home, and in hobart there are many of these in different hues of blue growing along the road i travel !
