Just said farewell to my nieces Juliette and Olivia who flew back home to Sydney. They had spent a week with us in Hobart and we took them to adventurous trips around Tassie. From historic Port Arthur to cold rainforest, across swinging bridges, visited the Antarctica exhibition in the Hobart Museum and cooked Pizza and Spaghetti together. It was the small things that were the girls’ favourites – skipping stones on water, rocking on a rope, which held the Aurora Australis in the docks, scarrying sea gulls and making a book together, drawing a page each evening and sawing it together at the end of their trip. It was a fantastic week, we were tired in the evenings and happy faces woke us in the morning.
