Last Of Hobart

We left the Showgrounds around nine to visit Jack and Jenny Smith (Jenny’s cousins) right in Hobart. We called in at their unit before Jenny guided us around to the Nursing Home where Jack now resides. Beautiful home situated in glorious established gardens. We had a great visit, Jack was having a good day. We had coffee and cake in the little cafe run by volunteers.

We left there at around eleven and caught up with Bob and Debbie at Kingston where we had lunch before taking a meandering trip along the coast past Margate down to Franklin before setting up camp at Shipwrights Point Foreshore camping area at Port Huon. The fishermen took the opportunity to throw in a hook despite the strong winds and mists on the surrounding hills. Jenny caught a little flathead but it was crying for its mother so she had to return it to the sea. No other bites other than the biting wind after dinner. We gave up and retired to our motorhomes after a medicinal Old Tawny.
