Lunch in the Country

On Sunday we headed off to have lunch in a country town well over 1 hours drive from Launceston. A glorious autumn day after rain the night before.

The vanilla slices are huge and cost $5.50 each, delicious and well worth the money. We had a picnic on the tables provided in the town.

There were many rubbish bins placed throughout the village - Colin :)

  1. Thank you regarding the availability of the rubbish bins.
    I have no doubt that Tasmanians know exactly what they are
    to be used for.
    Such a pity that MacDonalds lovers don't know!

    Looks like the street cleaners might have some overtime work from
    all that Autumn foliage. Good to know also that the rain has arrived.

    The town of Ross, eh??
    Now that must have some history attached????

    Cheers
    Colin

    1. You are welcome, I took special note of the bins.
      Our KFC's are clean as well, don't seem to find any rubbish about in the street..well that's this week :)
      The leaves on the ground look the part of autumn, and I expect eventually they will be cleaned when all has fallen, or maybe the wind will blow them away. I feel for the drains being clogged up.
      Heaps of history from Ross..will post some later.

    2. I shall look forward to the history of Ross.
      Yes the drains and clogging - a nightmare up here!
      The less said about the state of drains and leaves up
      here and the finger pointing the better!

    1. Very pretty there Gosia. There are two take a ways shops,one you can eat outside or inside, not sure about the other, and a Hotel where many people eat.

  6. I hope the accommodation is not how it would have been in colonial times. Ross looks very historic and well preserved. It is a fine entry to Macquarie House.

    1. I wouldn't think so Andrew, should be a bit more modern these days but still retain part of the Colonial feel.
      Interesting Village and yes, lots of history.

  8. My stomach was immediately drawn to the vanilla slice but my heart was drawn to the post box (a little like traditional British ones) and the last photo of the colonial property with the autumn foliage. Lovely Margaret!

  10. Vanilla cake looks very interesting, and not something I've seen before. I'm sure it was worth the drive! Love the iron fence and the red post box.

  13. My hubby would go nuts over that vanilla slice! He loves the creamy middle, and that one certainly has a lot of it. :-)

  14. Middle is always lovely. My youngest sister in law makes lovely vanilla slices, nearly as good as the ones from Ross.
