Yesterday mum, dad and myself drove out to Sassafras to check out the Tasmanian Food and Wine Conservatory. We'd been meaning to eat there for a while (it's now been open for a year) and it was well (well!) worth heading out there. I went a bit snap-happy on Instagram while we were visiting. You can see those here if you're interested. If you're passing along on the highway I can definitely recommend a pit stop - I'm going to be making as many excuses as I can from now on to get there and try a few other items on the menu.
After a quick look around an old church, we spent a bit of time wandering around Hawley Beach. I'm always fascinated by the colours and textures on beaches. I get kind of caught up in all the lines and marks and details. I just can't help myself. I find it really interesting to see how things weather - man-made and natural alike.
Then mum wanted to do a bit of family-name hunting at the church in Wesley Vale. I must admit I was a bit more interested in the neighbouring chooks and apple tree. The chooks were a bit standoffish (I mean, really, who doesn't like a Sunday afternoon chat?) and I didn't take any of the apples - I thought that was best left for the possums, but I did think seriously about it for a good little while. I love how they start turning red from the yellow, making it look like they've been out in the harsh Tasmanian sunshine without sunscreen a bit longer than they ought (well, we've all been there before.)
Hope you had a lovely and restful Easter break!
