Hobart - April - 2018

A week in Hobart from April 7 -14.

We stayed in a loft AirBnb with views across Bellerive Yacht Club.

The Gif is compiled of 134 still frames.
The frames may take time to load.
Each frame was originally a 12mgb image.
The camera was hand held for the duration and shot
through the mesh of a fence.
The original posting has been titled and edited to adjust the timing
and draw out the content of a few frames.

When the dam is full it will provide an infinity pool view from the cottage currently being restored behind.

Dog & bone
The previous property owner shot the wallabies that came onto the property and left the carcasses
in a creek bed. No shortage of bones for poochy.

A bit windy. At the ferry terminal waiting to return.

Australia's Antartic Ship Aurora Australis

The image of the sailing ship below is from a glass plate negative held in my collection.
A friend identified it, subject to confirmation, as the May Queen, and the Port as Hobart.
The May Queen is an historic sailing ship currently moored at the wharf in Hobart as the photos
