The Summers over and to school we must go back….

After having a few weeks of sickness with two kids home in quarantine I needed to escape so we took a day trip to Latrobe, a place I used to frequent as a child but hadn’t been back for many years.  We took the kids to Reliquare and got lost in all the rooms of things, and surprisingly didn’t come out with spending much, except on an axe….

I also ended up with heaps of photos of my eldest boy because everyone else was grumpy and running away from my camera.  I think he was sick of me by the end of the day.

We also made a quick trip to the Devonport Antique Emporium which I had never been to yet and wish I had visited sooner it was AMAZING so huge and so much to look at, but a bit hard with kids in tow.

It was such a lovely day, I can’t wait for our next day trip.

 

Stanley, Tasmania – The Nut

We started our journey by telling the kids we were off to see a giant nut – which in their minds was a literal giant nut, like the big banana or something, so they were a little disappointed when we the nut appeared and it was a mountain.

Then even more disappointed when we told them we were going to climb up it!

On the drive to the Nut, the weather was very temperamental and it looked as if were were driving closer and closer to a rainy destination, but the weather held out for us.

After much complaining we made it to the top…

It was rather windy!  We were prepared with coats, but if I was going again I would take a beanie, as the ears got quite cold!

We walked the track around the top of the Nut, and in the middle was a small amount of bush, where I found a pocket of light…..felt like we could have been anywhere in the world, not on top of a volcanic plug!
