I hope everyone had a great Easter.
We flew south to Hobart, Tasmania, that little island state south of mainland Australia. Did you guess it?
And Hobart is down at the bottom, 43 degrees south latitude, so much cooler than our home in Brisbane, Queensland.
Brooding Mt Wellington overlooks the city, usually with a dusting of snow on top.
We drove up there, and yes, indeedy, there was snow! And Very Cold Wind!
I loved it...it was just above freezing, and I was wearing Accessories..
gloves, a knitted beret, warm, scarf, tights, cashmere sweater and faux leather jacket - Excellent!
Above the tree-line, there is an eerie atmosphere.
A dull day, but the views were spectacular..
We retreated away from the wind, into this glass viewing space - a bit tricky for photography..
Our Hobart hotel was near the water, and the historic wharf area with its famous Salamanca Place markets:
Bought ourselves new leather gloves with furry lining...
It was nice to see some real Autumn leaves..
And speaking of yellow, remember Kate's spectacular yellow dress from last week...
Look what Style Arc patterns produced, just 24 hours later:
So, do you think I ordered it?
And here is tonight's dress, the only evening function in Australia, a reception in the nation's capital, Canberra:
Elegant and understated, and looking beautiful after three weeks of touring.
I am sure they are both looking forward to flying home tomorrow.
I will tell you about a few more things we saw and did, next post.
Be good and stay safe XXXX
