Early morning selfies. Look at that little face, delighted in seeing herself on the screen.
We stayed two nights in Queenstown, in an AirBnB house. It was a good place, apart from sagging couches, broken shower and the open fire that just couldn't keep the house warm over the freezing nights. So, we all ended up in bed together.
Three in the bed and the little one said... ;)
Queenstown and surrounds are mining towns, with a landscape so different from elsewhere in Tasmania. Barren. Pocked.
Strahan, where we headed for the day, is tiny. We thought to have lunch at the pub, only to discover it's just open for dinner at this time of year. Pies at the bakery were good though. :)
The town's main attraction is a cruise up the Gordon River but with the boat having already left for the day early that morning (we weren't really planning on it anyway) we took a private cruise around the bay instead.
Little miss felt very relaxed in the lovely sunshine. I fed her, she slept, everything but a nappy change on the boat.
They are salmon pots in the distance there, with birds flocking around the feeding barge. Each pot will generate $2 million profit with each harvest. Big business. Curiously, due to regulations you can't buy the salmon or ocean trout locally, only post-processed at the supermarket.
This was actually her 5th boat ride!
A beautiful sunset over a beautiful wilderness.
We headed into that wilderness the next day, but I'll leave those photos for next time. :)
