Freezing in Hobart

I went to Hobart for a few days last week. I was disappointed not to have time to potter around, but it was cold and wet and windy, so not great weather for sightseeing anyway.

I took the camera hoping to get some nice shots of heritage buildings but didn't really see anything on my rushed trip to the shops to buy souvenirs for Ruby and Max. This is about all I saw:

out my hotel window (Hobart doesn't look too flash from the 4th floor of the Mercure Hotel)

a gorgeous statue in front of a church (which happened to be across the road from the ugliest scrapbooking shop I've ever seen)

I think I was staying in the wrong part of town. This was the loveliest building I saw:

The best part of my trip (apart from the work which was really productive) was meeting up with 2 online friends. It was super fabulous meeting Maria and Jacquie after knowing them for nearly 4 years. They are both even more amazing in real life than they are online.

Off to Canberra this week.

peace and love

Hobart really is beautiful it's a shame that you didn't get to see the really lovely parts, like Battery Point and a drive down to Cygnet or such.
