Although December was a write-off, blogwise, we had a lovely holiday in Tasmania, returning home just in time for Christmas. Here are a few of the highlights of our Tassie trip:
The Freycinet National Park on the east coast was amazing. We did the Wineglass Bay/Hazards Beach circuit - a 5-hour walk - which tested our not too great fitness levels, but was well worth the effort (and gave us bragging rights too!)
This little mother was on the beach, making friends with visitors.
We then went on to Strahan, on the west coast, and enjoyed a day cruise around Macquarie Harbor and the Gordon River - great fun!
While staying at Tullah Lakeside Lodge (west coast area) with friends we had our first experience of kayaking on the lakes.
One final highlight of our trip was a visit to the largest independent lavender farm in the world - Bridestowe Lavender Farm.
I can recommend a holiday in Tasmania - there is so much to see and do, but a great place to relax also.
P.S. At present, you will look in vain for any evidence of bearmaking here, but I hope to share some new little critters with you soon. Stay in touch!
