At the moment, my photo a day challenges are colours. On Sunday, the day was orange.
At the waterfront, the Australian Antarctic Ice Breaker ship in is port. There is also a new pilot boat. When we stopped for a coffee, it was served in an orange cup.
The day was orange, with blue skies 🙂
Pretty cool place to do music practice. It made me think of my daughters, a decade ago, the sound of trumpet, saxophone, flute, keyboard and drums in our home.
It is spring time, with the days getting warmer and longer.
But this is a strange month for me. Our daughters were born in September, so memories and my northern hemisphere brain will always associate the month with autumn. Even after three and a half years, it is the changing seasons that trip me up. Springtime should mean Easter not preparing for Christmas.
We’ve enjoyed walks along the beach and cliffs, a visit to the botanical gardens and seeing spring flowers and the sun shining on our city parks. I’ve been able to sit out on our balcony with a cuppa, after work.
The RAAF Roulettes flew over the cenotaph to commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
Other bloggers have posted about their month on Su’s Changing Seasons page.
This morning, I went for a walk along one of the rivulets that flow down from Mount Wellington. Two hundred years ago, these streams provided fresh water to the new settlement of Hobart, although they gradually became polluted by industry and the growing population. Today they are public spaces with walking tracks.
New Town Rivulet has a couple of interesting sculptures representing local flora and fauna.
I wonder how long this bench has been along this track? How many people of rested here?
… on a showery weekend.
This month, there is an interactive literary exhibition, in a gallery in Hobart.
113 books are on display.
Multiple copies are available to pick up and read, to take over to a chair. Drinks and snacks are on hand.
There are various events, book club discussions, audience with authors, silent reading parties.
We visited the gallery on a rainy Saturday. Randomly, I chose a book, chose a page and took a photo of the text. I’m amazed at the variety of content, prose, fiction, poetry, autobiography, even opera with music score.
I want to visit again and get inside more of these books.

and sunny day again.
We captured low tide today at the Tessellated Pavement. This naturally formed pavement is just one of the fascinating rock formations at Eaglehawk Neck. The flat rock surface has been divided in regular blocks over thousands of years.
