A Good Day Out – In Hobart


The week between Xmas and New Year is such a lot of fun in Hobart. There is The Taste of Tasmania, there is the finish of 4 big yacht races, not the least of which is the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, and there is random street entertainment all making for a general buzz of people enjoying the docks, the lawns and Salamanca place. Combine that with sunshine and friends and it is a great day out in Hobart.

A wander around the Docks to see the first two boats that crossed the line in the 2014 Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Challenge. While we had seen Wild Oats XI many times before, Comanche was new and exciting. And the crew sported great t-shirts with accompanied significant folk in Comanche headgear, it was a great spectacle.

Then onto The Taste of Tasmania for a look and a snack before we headed over to Salamanca for the customary wine and pizza.
