We have been exploring Hobart this past week, and I am loving the history and the architecture. This city really has character, and it just has been a beautiful place to visit. We have been so blessed with lovely weather, apparently we must have brought it with us!
I was hoping we would make it to the historical convict town of Port Arthur, and as we had a perfect day, we spent it wandering slowly around this amazing place. So much has been kept as it was in those days, that you really get a sense of how things were. Beautiful ruins, some being restored, and stories to go with them.
The top of Mt Wellington on a clear day...
The top the day before... a little cloudy!

A beautiful sight from the water...
A random, but sweet, Japanese wedding on the grounds.
The clock tower, now museum
The old laundry in ruins
A view across the grounds of some of the little homesteads
Tessellated paving.. all natural and a total wonder...
The shells at 7 mile beach, we collected so many that day!
The collection is growing steadily.
Beautiful valley views heading in to Hobart
I am trying to be good and keep up with the updates, but it is tricky sometimes on the road, so please forgive me, and my lack of visits to all your gorgeous blogs! I can't wait to catch up on them all :)
