Along the Tamar

 A drive the other day down to the Tamar River here in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia.  It was a beautiful Spring Day and the water was calm.  
There is a Hotel in a place called Rosevears over looking the Tamar River excellent meals I believe and many people gather to eat there.  Picnic tables across from the Hotel and you can catch a ferry and go for a little ride on the river.
Many years ago my husband and myself along with another couple water skied in this area. In those days I didn't have a camera!

    1. There is just something good about clouds reflecting in the water, make for a much more interesting photo.

  5. Tamar river is certainly a beauty. I used to frequent Launceston a lot mainly for contractor work in LGH and local calvary private. To be honest, the only incentive of being there is really accessing the natural beauty there lol

  10. Hello Margaret.
    I haven't looked here for a long time, and here are so many beautiful photos. It's nice to watch and admire these wonderful views.
    Have a nice week.
    It is still raining in my place, hence I take less walks, I am waiting for a colorful autumn, which will be at my place in two three weeks.

  16. Lovely scenery. I love a ferry ride. Lovely reflections in the water. I know another Tamer Ferry in the UK Margaret. I used to take that ferry regularly as I lived down that way for many years.

    1. I expect our Tamar River could have been named after the one in the UK. We don't have a regular ferry service across the river but in Launceston there is a cruise ship (small) that will take you for a ride up the Tamar River.

  22. Water skiing eh? How I loved that sport as a young buck in my PNG dqys
    at Finschhafen. Even got to the bare foot stage!
    Major problem was the very dangerous sea snakes - beautifully coloured
    but deadly if they got you.
    Cheers

    1. Yes, water skiing on the Tamar River.
      That would be half the fun seeing that you didn't get bitten by a deadly snake.

  23. Love the reflection of the trees on the riverbank in the water! I don't know why I missed your post on the reading list again. The rain is pouring now. Everywhere I drive through has river choking the drainage systems

    1. Reflections are always good.
      Probably Blogger playing up, just a thought anyway you came :) and commented, thank you.
      Trying to rain here, just a few spits so far. Drive Safely in the rain and hopefully the drains won't become too burdened with the rain.
