Back home.

I do hope you are well whilst I've been gone on holiday.  So lovely to be back home but was great to have a holiday away from home in the south of the Island of Tasmania, Australia.  In a few weeks time we will be off again all being well.

We as in my husband and myself left in the caravan Christmas week returning Saturday January 9, 2021.  Our eldest son his wife and their two little ones came just after Christmas and came home same day as we did.  Youngest son stayed home and had his children come to stay for Christmas in our house.

Extremely lucky on this Island as there is no Covid-19 and hasn't been for awhile now but we all know not to take things for granted, so always distance and so on.

On the way to Huonville down south we went through Campbell Town in the Midlands of Tasmania and of course it was rest time so out came the camera for some photos. These sculptures depict the history of Tasmania.  A post of Campbell Town not long before we left is [ here ]

  6. Good to have you back and that you enjoyed yourself. The wood carvings really are very good and I know they are passing traffic stoppers.

    1. So many people stop there to take photos of the carvings, it's a good thing.
      Once there were great big old dangerous trees there, lots of shade as we stopped there a few times on real hot days to cool down and also eat lunch as there were picnic tables there too..

  8. Welcome back home, Margaret, and a belated Happy New Year to you as well. It's nice that you and family members could spend time together and even better news that there is no virus on your island. Hope it stays that way this year as well. The wood carvings were quite spectacular and I wondered how long they have been in the elements and still look so good.

      Feel for so many that couldn't spend Christmas or New Year together and we are so lucky here in Tasmania in so many ways - at times :)

  13. Hi Margaret, welcome back. Glad you had a wonderful holiday. We started 2021 with a month long lockdown so we can't go anywhere, have to be patient, :)
    Those sculptures are beautiful, thanks for sharing.
