The big move

Three days ago, David and I moved to the Huon Valley, about 40 minutes drive south of Hobart in Tasmania, the often forgotten southernmost state of Australia. On this blog I plan to share a little of this beautiful region with friends, family and anyone else passing by, largely through a photo or two each day.

The drive south (approximately 1,700 km including the ferry) was a big adventure in itself, so my first post is just a few highlights from the journey.

Can you believe we almost filled this container with our stuff? Including David's motorbike, it was full.

Waiting to board the Spirit of Tasmania at Port Melbourne.

Finally we made it. Good to actually see the place, given we'd only been there once before, and that was 8 weeks ago.

Had time to unpack the cars and have a cup of tea before driving back to Hobart airport to collect our poor bewildered dog and cats. Think I look a bit like Maria doing "Hills are Alive" from The Sound of Music in this pic.
