Nov 14, 2017 - Tasmania Trip 2017

Today we all drove to George Town. David and Ann did a 17km walk, from George Town to the Pilot Station. Good to see them back to their normal energetic selves. Noel and I walked through town, not much to look at in the shops. Then seen more tree carvings, this time with a maritime theme. Then to the Low Head Pilot station, we went through the museum. It is still a working Pilot Station as there is a reef at the mouth of the Tamar River, so any ships coming in need a Pilot. Then out to the Low Head Lighthouse, the scenery is beautiful,...

Nov 13, 2017 - Tasmania Trip 2017

Sunday 12th, walked up town to go to a Christian Fellowship Church. A lovely service. Had a restful afternoon. Ann had her first win at cards, that makes girls 2, and boys about 20. They have to be getting up to something. Monday 13th, we moved on to Bridport. A pretty drive, but very winding roads, much care taken. We drove into Legerwood, had been told to see the memorial carvings there. The local people planted trees after the war to commerate those who had died from the local area. Many years later these trees died, so they...

Jan 23, 2010 - Bridport - Deloraine

Vandaag van Bridport naar Deloraine gereden. Eerst gestopt bij de bekende lavendel boerderij van Bridestowe estate. Volgens hun brochure zouden zij de grootste private lavendel boerderij ter wereld uitbaten. De boerderij staat op 94ha en is sinds 2007 in private handen. De eerste lavendel, Lavendula Angusifolia, werd door Charles Denny gezaaid in 1921 en na jaren experimenteren werden er 5 clonen geselecteerd om mee verder te kweken. De olie die ze produceerden was even goed als de bese franse. In 1944 moest er uitgebreid worden en werd de...

Jan 22, 2010 - st helens- bridport

Vandaag uit St Helens vetrokken en eerst eens gaan kijken naar de baai, maar er was niets spectaculairs te zien. Daarna landinwaarts gereden en al snel in een deel van het tasmaanse regenwoud terechtgekomen. Eerst naar Hall Falls gaan kijken en bij het begin van het pad stond er een waarschuwing die ik nog niet tegengekomen was in Australië. Er stond “when moist, look out for leeches” wat betekent dat wanneer het vochtig is er bloedzuigers aktief zijn. In het woud ook grote boomvarens tegengekomen. De waterval was maar klein en iets...

Jan 3, 2006 - Tas: Barnbougle Golf Course, Bridport

Our last day in Tasmania and Mother Nature has finally decided to come to the party - it's warm and sunny, if a bit windy. Stu has booked a golf game at Barnbougle, supposed to be one of the best courses in Tasmania. Luckily it's by Bridport, a pretty seaside town with good beaches, so I'm happy to hang out and get some much needed sun while he plays. I find a nice, sheltered, secluded beach and have a lovely day hanging out reading and swimming. Stu is not so lucky. With the golf course right on the coast he cops every buffet of wind,...

Jun 2, 2005 - Barnbougle Dunes

My parents went away again - just two weeks after being in Fiji! This time it was to play golf at the world famous Barnbougle Dunes golf course in northern Tasmania. It was here they did the tests that showed my Mum, Kirsten was pregnant. They were so excitied they went into the club house and polished off a bottle of champagne. Typical.
