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

St. Crispins Well
The original plan was to walk to Pulpit Rock and Mt Connection in the higher altitude parts of Wellington Park, but it was hot and with high winds forecast, it was decided to do a walk on the lower parts of Mount Wellington instead. A good decision, as it turned out. I was home before the crazy weather started - very high winds, rain, hail and long rolling thunder - the most I've heard in Tasmania yet I think. Today's walk along the Pipeline Track to St. Crispins Well afforded lovely views of Cathedral Rock (above). It was shady for the most part, and despite recent dry weather the waters flowed and the air was lovely and cool at the well itself.
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.
