Tailrace Park

Tailrace Park and Estuary is on the other side of the City of Launceston in the suburb of Trevallyn.  
There is a playground for the children, barbecue area, grass, footpath that goes far.   We all as in eldest son's little children have spent many a birthday party in the area when they were very young. The children said they are too old to go there now for their birthdays - now aged 9 and 7...😄
These photos were taken about July and the Estuary is on the Western side of the Tamar River.

  1. Margaret, children grow up and sometimes we don't realize it. When we talk about our son, as an adult, we don't say to him: my baby ... my baby ...?

    1. They are lovely swans one of my favourite birds, yes, they are free to fly or swim anywhere - they are lucky.

  3. What a glorious area. Your grandchildren might be (temporarily) too old for it - but I would not be, and would welcome being taken there as a birthday treat.

    1. They just think they are too old for a gathering there at this point in their lives. Other things to explore.
      It's a really nice area.

    1. You are correct. Black Swans are lovely, I presume you are used to white ones.

  11. The image of those Black Swans takes me right back to Australia! I keep trying to plan a return visit, but COVID gets in the way and now airline tickets cost a king's ransom, and travel insurance is expensive and restrictive. I am wondering if I will ever be able to return.

    1. Well hopefully one day you might get here again. The Australia border is closed once again for another 2 weeks to various people. Can't keep up with it all as it's forever changing and people are losing their money left right and centre.

  12. Me gusta mucho ver cisnes negros, porque son muy elegantes y no son muy habituales en mi entorno. El lugar es un remanso de paz, Margaret :)

  22. Your swans over there are so beautiful! I have seen them on holiday, once a pair at a temple in Hawaii and the others in an English town near my old home back in the UK. I love the white in their tail feathers, such a beautiful contrast to their black feathers and red beak. A gorgeous bird! Thank you for those lovely scenic shots and the maps. Happy December to you Margaret!

      The white against the black does look good, I didn't realise there was so much white on the black swan.
