Sunny Hobart, Tasmania!

This weekend we headed south and flew to Tasmania to visit The Lad who is studying at UTas. We are also on the ‘tour of universities’ for Boy Wonder who only has 18 months left of high school. Hobart pulled out all the stops with glorious, clear-blue skies. We caught up with some writing friends, did some of the tourist things, met some of The Lad’s friends and generally enjoyed ourselves. Here’s a pictorial diary of our three days “down south.”
