Launceston - Ross - Miena - Launceston

Midlands highway

Sunshine again - luckily we have a great day planned.
First we are going to Campbell Town, my absolute favourite town in Tassie as it has the best Leather shop.
No photos here - I was too busy shopping for shoes.

Ross - one of Tasmania's famous old towns on the Midland Highway.

No visit would be complete without a visit to the famous Ross Bakery for a Vanilla Slice.

After taking a wrong turn we had to give way to the local sheep herd -

Scottsdale - Launceston

Another rainy day

Another rainy day - unbelievable !!

Before leaving I had to take a few photos of the gardens at Anabelle's, would love to come back one day and see this garden in full bloom.

Arriving at Launceston I was very pleased to see that The Old Bakery Inn had been refurbished since our last visit - it is very nice.

Bicheno - Wineglass Bay

Walk into Wineglass Bay

Today the sun is shining again - lucky for us, we are walking into Wineglass Bay today.

A short ride, followed by a quick change into walking gear and we are off in glorious sunshine.

The surf at Wineglass Bay was spectacular today -

On the way back we stopped at the Bicheno Motorcycle Museum, small but the bikes were in immaculate condition.

Hobart to Bicheno

Rain again

Leaving Hobart in sunshine it looked like a nice day - wrong !!
We stopped at Richmond for morning tea, intending to visit the Bear Shop and the Bridge.
Down came the rain - and that was it.

On the bikes and straight to Bicheno in the drizzly rain, just enough to spoil the view and make it a wet ride.

Luckily later in the afternoon at Bicheno the weathered cleared up enough to go for a walk.

Aitch spotted the perfect "fisherman" photo

And then just to prove he is a decent bloke he showed the fishermen their photo.
