Monday's Travels

Today was a public holiday here in Tasmania so the towns were very quiet.

After a week of mainly warm and sunny days, today marked the beginning of a forthcoming cold spell. It was quite chilly and we even had a hail shower at one point.

Here are a few photos from our journey tiday

We visited a seahorse breeding farm and found the tour fascinating. They export the creatures all over the world.

By the time we reached Cataract Gorge on the outskirts of the city of Launceston it had started to rain. When it turned to hail we cut short our walk.


  1. Great industrial pictures. Thanks.

  2. Isn't it almost summer down under? Can't believe you had hail! I am so enjoying your photo journal. Keep posting!

  3. Hail? Good heavens! By the way, I hope you both averted your eyes while the seahorses were breeding.

  4. You are certainly visiting some interesting places. I'd love to see the sea horses breeding!
