So long Tassie, Hello, good bye Daylesford
Yes, I know, we keep saying were' leaving Tasmania and we keep blogging about it. Well, its' hard to say good bye when your' in love! And in love with Tassie we are, and we did our best to share our enthusiasm for the Apple Isle with Ron and Agnes, David's parents who visited for a short week. We did a quick circumvolution of Tassie, and Cecile took the opportunity to snap a few more fungi.
Then it was back to Victoria after a smooth as silk crossing of the Bass straight (that makes it four perfectly smooth crossings in a row, are we due for a rough one next?) Daylesford was waiting for us in all its autumn glory. We both had to agree that after nine months on the road and having so far driven through every state except WA, there is just nowhere like Daylesford. Our neighbour and friend Alistair kindly gave us a bed for the night. His cottage shares a wall with our house, Mount Stuart, and it was strange lying in bed thinking our home of ten years was just one brick width away.
We checked out our investment for the future (Hepburn Community Wind Farm, of which we are proud share holders) and set off to catch up with family in Melbourne.
Lovely to catch up with loved ones, but, as the song goes "go West, young man". As we mentioned before, we have not yet ticked WA. So the Hybrid Honda got a full service ready to tackle the Nullarbor. Next stop Kalgoolie? Esperance? Perth?
