We picked up Ricky’s brother and his wife from the Launceston airport on Friday night and headed to St Helens on the East Coast of Tassie. They had flown in from NSW and we were all staying with my sister-in-laws parents. Ricky and his brother had a big lodge night in St Helens on the Saturday. Secret mens business and all that!! The East Coast of Tassie is just beautiful with gorgeous beaches and white sand and spectacular scenery.
We left home early and decided to “do lunch” in Launceston and have a look at some places we hadn’t been to in years. First up we went to Grindlewald……a “Swiss Village”. Lots of permanent houses as well as the resort. All people building there have to build in the Swiss theme. Quite a pretty place just on the outskirts of Launceston….but don’t know that I would want to live there…….
This is the “Village square” where we stopped for lunch. That is Ricky in the middle in the white shirt.
Helllooooo…………….. hide the toenail polish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then we went to the Launceston Gorge. We walked all the way up the track to what they call the Basin where there is a pool and also swimming in the Basin as well as a chair lift………………………..
The track we walked up…… on the shady side!! It was very hot that day!
The footbridge across the basin. The chairlift spans across this section also….
We stopped and watched this girl rock climbing over the other side of the river for a while…..
On Saturday we went to a market with Bro and sister in-law and then we went on a bit of a tour around the coast area at St Helens……..
Ricky was standing down the bank a bit……so I could look tall 🙂
Awwwwww……………..the East Coast is sooooooooooooo romantic 🙂
Well, that’s it. Just a quick one today. My next post will be all about the band and how it is going……I am living tight since my last fill and loving it!!!!
