Pondering Frog and Swansea

The Pondering Frog is a Licensed Restaurant not far from Swansea in Tasmania. 
Didn't take a photo as too many cars were parked out the front of the building.
There is a large paddock which is mostly flat and it's here that one can park their caravan or RV for the night if you are self-contained, which mean - own bathroom, holding tank for water and grey water as there are no facilities expect in the restaurant which caravaner's/RV's can't use.
There is a donation box attached to a tree and one can leave a small donation which we did.
Many people stay here and travel a short distance to other tourist destinations in the area.

The place was packed (again no photo because every time I went outside to take one people were looking straight at my camera) and the next morning we were about the last to leave, we were not in a hurry.




Moved onto Swansea for a stop closer to the sea and to get out for a walk.  Took a few photos..

  1. I rarely ever cared about people caring about what pictures I take in a very public crowd-like setting anyway. I do like that using a smarthphone does make it seem more low-key

    1. I don't usually care a great deal either Adman, but when everyone is looking at you and saying no photo I guess I have to accept..
      A mobile phone is very good for snapping an quick shot.

    1. If you stand in the middle of the bridge you look out to the sea.

  4. I'd love to know what breed of ducks they are.
    They are too light coloured to be wood ducks.
    Pity that the fantastic documentary on Tasmanian forests, wild life etc.
    didn't have bird life information.

    As for the Jumping Jack Ants you just keep them down there, thank you.

    Cheers from rainy, cold and not touristy Terrigal.

    1. It's a good name for a bookstore - because we do ponder over which novel to purchase :)
