Hobart Friday

Late this afternoon I was faced with a choice: would I go for a swim, or would I go for a beer? The Hobart Aquatic Centre is right across the road from the ABC. Pubs are a little further away. It was a case of convenience vs temptation. Two seconds later, I'd made my choice.... Continue Reading →

New Sydney Hotel, Hobart

As I sat, sipping on a glass of wine at The Brick Factory, I received an instant message from Damien, asking where I was planning to have dinner tonight . "Spooky", I replied, "I was just going through your email thinking exactly the same thing". He and Kristin love their food and wine, are big fans... Continue Reading →

Hobart at Night

It's over 18 months since the last time I visited Hobart. Sue and I visited during November 2013, around Melbourne Cup time when the weather was glorious. Though I was anticipating some rather bleak weather this time around (rain and perhaps snow are forecast) the weather was absolutely delightful when I touched down this afternoon....

Salamanca Saturday

As we walked around the markets yesterday morning, the name "Cary Lewincamp" caught my eye. Back in the days when I was still a broadcaster (and even now from time to time), I would often play his tune "Salamanca Saturday" (a short instrumental piece) on the radio. And there, as Sue and I walked around... Continue Reading →
