A drive

We went for a drive the other day and I took these photos with my phone as we travelled along. The first photo is someone's lane, a farmer's one.  The remainder of the shots are as we drove along.

The mountain in the distance is called Ben Lomond which sometimes has snow on it and can be seen from our house through the family room windows.

The little town of Ballroom.  It has one house which on the opposite side of the road.  Have no idea why there is only one house there.

Devil's Corner

Devil's Corner is on the East Coast of Tamania. It's a Vineyard with lookout looking towards Cole's Bay. There is a restaurant which provides good meals and an ideal stop over on the journey to Hobart or north bound to Launceston.

The Pondering Frog

Down the East Coast of Tasmania there is a Cafe called 'The Pondering Frog', lovely ice creams and a good selection of food with a dinning room, it's a popular place for tourist and one can stay the night for a small fee in their caravan if self-contained.
A playground for children and a slide for the children of a frog as shown in the first photo, the last 2 photos are frogs that I bought from The Pondering Frog - maybe not to some peoples liking but I was attracted to them and it's something different for the time being.

The Spiky Bridge

 The Spiky Bridge on the Southern East Coast of Tasmania is no longer required so the highway goes around it these days.  In days gone by the bridge was used so cattle travelling along the road would not fall down into the gully below.  The photo is where a farm house once was with a few stone only being left if you look hard.

The sea

Just a few photos of the sea from the Highway on the Southern East Coast of Tasmania.  There are a few places that you can drive into and take a rest or visit the beach below.

Mt. Beauty.

Mt. Beauty is in southern Tasmania Huonville.   The mountain is 366m high a sometimes I'm told has a dusting of snow on it in winter.  can be seen from the main street/highway in Huonville.  We set off to take a photos of her but couldn't get a closer one from a different angle because it's farmland around that area and several farm houses near by and people don't like you walking on their property.

One of our grandchildren looking in the river for little fish.

Mt. Beauty, if you look hard use your imagination you can see the lady lying down, with a forehead at the top and a nose along with a chin...can you see?

Heading up the East Coast from Hobart this part of the road is windy and photos taken out the window of the vehicle as we drove along.
