Mum and I arrived in Hobart late on the evening of the 27th, from leaving Brisbane at 8am on Christmas Day till today we have encountered/done/etc
2111km of driving
a 10.5hr boat trip
a night in Dubbo
a night in Sunbury on the outskirts of Melbourne
a visit to the radio telescope at Parkes, which you may know from the great Australian movie, The Dish
countless miles of farm land
a dominance of Coles Petrol stations in rural NSW when we had Woolies dockets
The greeness of the rice paddies
near empty roads heading south on the 25th and 26th
lots and lots of Victorians (Mexicans) heading north on the same two days.
Wathing the super-maxi Wild Oats XI cross the line and break the record in the Sydney-Hobart Yacht Race
Holding the said Cup and having my photo taken with one of the crew members.
Swaying in the wind and rain on the Tahune Air Walk
Enjoying a Tasmanian BBQ with my cousins and their friends etc
Taking in the historical/touristy ambience of Richmond
I think that covers most of the things that have happened in the last couple of days.
