Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland

There is a model shipyard in Franklin in a lovely house down on the river. David met the owners of it while he was out walking the dog a couple of months ago - they also used to own a Bernese Mountain Dog. It's well worth popping in. These are not the kind of boats you just look at, they are working, sailing models that Jack and his mates take out on the water. David saw them doing just this today in Franklin and took a few photos. There's a little video on YouTube of one of the yachts, and here's a lovely Lonely Planet image of Jack with another.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
