Tasmania – Day 5, Road to Hobart
We left Strahan,after getting my last coffee from the Coffee Shack, this morning and headed to Hobart. It is a fairly long drive, but not without possible stops on the way. Though I have to admit that once I get going I like to just keep going, but we did stop a couple of times.
The first stop was at the suggestion of tassiegrammer on Instagram. He suggested Nelson Falls. We weren’t disappointed.
With all the rain Tasmania has been getting it was so full and flowing fast. It was also throwing up lots of mist, so I had to constantly clean my filter. I got wet, but it was well worth it.
Next we stopped at Lake St Clair. Here we went for a walk around the edge of the lake.
We saw rivers meeting, we think it was. The spot is called watermeet.
It was a great place and the walk pretty easy. We also had lunch there as well. They were very heavy on the salt, but it was nice. The pumpkin soup was incredible, I wished I had ordered it.
Next we thought we would check out The Wall. The admission price was $12, which we ummed about, did we really want to pay $12, but decided okay. Then when we got to where we pay it said “No Cameras Past This Point”. That did it for me, I was out of there. I just think what is the point if we can’t take photos. I want to show people where I have been. Put up photos here and on my social media sites. Now instead of good publicity I am telling all my photography friends, or anyone who wants to take photos don’t bother going. They obviously haven’t learned how important social media is and what it can do for them.
The rest of the trip was fairly uneventful. We did see lots of water though. Many of the rivers are running to capacity and fast. Some have burst their banks and flowing into parks and along the sides. Thankfully the road was high enough.
We are now here in Hobart and staying in a very nice place. Just had dinner at Prossers, which was also great. So lots planned, but time to get some sleep. Off to Bruny Island tomorrow.
