    Loving Tassie!!

    I arrived on the 29th and have had a chance to find my bearings before before my husbands boat finished the Sydney to Hobart! They finished yesterday at 1:20pm, very considerate of them not to finish in the middle of the night. His boat Balance came 23rd across the line and was 2cnd on handicap in their division! The boys are very happy to be on dry land and we spent yesterday afternoon at Customs House, followed by celebratory crew dinner at Muirs and then on to the Shipwright Arms for further celebrations!! Have just been to the Salamanca Markets and have taken loads of photos of everything! Will share when I get home as I haven't had a chance to put photoshop on my new laptop yet!! Can't wait to practise fireworks photos tonight. We will be sitting on the boat doing just a bit more celebrating!!

    Welcome to Tassie. The waterfront is alive at this time of year. Get along to The Taste, and if you want to be inspired, amazed and disgusted, get a visit to MONA in as well.

    Yes I did get to Mona! It was stinking hot and a big que to get in. I stood in line and bought tickets via my iphone and went straight to the front of the line and in!! It was described to me as being the most amazing, incredible,strange and repulsive experience all at the same time and I think that is a pretty accurate description!! I didn't allow anywhere near enough time to look at everything properly but was amazed at the money spent on the facility. Some big bucks went into it.
    My seven year olds favourite part was the defacating machine!! I was impressed that they warned you about the sections not suitable for children and they were clearly marked and seperate from the rest of the exhibits. Definitely worth the effort of going and I look forward to going again with more time and possibly child free!

    hehe. The great wall of vagina certainly is an 'interesting' experience. Some stunning Art and some that is just plain confronting. Pretty good museum for little old Hobart.

    He he yes it was quite interesting! I commented to my husband that the artist had to have models for all of his umm works of art!! I always wonder who volunteers for that sort of thing!! or.. maybe they were paid models!
    Yes there was a lot of really confronting stuff for me some of it was borderline whether I personally consider it art or deranged!!
