Central Highlands of Tassie - weekend away

Twenty metre walk from the shack we stayed in at the lakes. The nets you can see are put there by the Inland fisheries. They are Galaxia nets. This pic was taken at 7am on a beautiful autumn morning.

The lovely old town of Bothwell is on the way down from the lakes to Hobart.

The sheep just taking it all in.

This view is from the very Australian "outside toilet - or dunny as they used to be called! see below

I am scared of spiders so as you can imagine I was very fast! My hubby really did have to convince me it was ok!

Nice display of pots to boil the water on the fire.

Here is where the shack is. Note the pointing stick it is a toasting fork, improvisation!

Lovely walk to the lake to enjoy the beautiful peace and quiet.

Early morning

Catch of the morning, my husband walked down to the lake at 6 am, and when I went to see him at 7 he was returning with these! One of them he cooked on the BBQ that evening at our daughters home in Hobart. And yes it was delicious.

My breakfast before going for a walk.

Lovely old kitchen cupboard at the shack.

Enjoying the fire on arriving.
