So drum roll- I opened the jar, put my hand into the bottom, wondering if it would get stuck, it didn't, and picked out page number 056. Page 056 is the Citrus Moon Cafe in Kingston."Woo hoo" you might have heard me cry.
The road to Kingston is a highway heading south out of Hobart and the cafe is 20 minutes away. However the motorbike world always goes to Kingston via Taroona, the community along the River Derwent and full of twisty roads and beautiful scenery.
It takes about 30 minutes to get there going the scenic route. Taroona itself is interesting in many ways but more recently is known for being the hometown of Princess Mary of Denmark.

Now you have just travelled with the Penguin through Taroona. There is also military history there and a beautiful old Shot Tower one can visit though I have never been up in it. Maybe when I pick one of the Random draws.
The thing that has always bothered me the most about the Princess Mary story is that her mother died before Mary met her prince. So she never knew her daughter became a member of Danish Royalty.
But back to Citrus Moon cafe. I go to that area quite a bit because the Kingston Dog Beach is just a block or two away and I often take my dogs down there.
Citrus Moon Cafe has lovely food and drink, however in the summer time it seems to be a meeting place of all things "PRAM". Yes very young babies and toddlers who very often do that "out of the blue, high pitched shriek right behind your back that makes the hair on your arms stand up".
The Yummy Mummies are there and it is a great place for them to hang out. I love seeing them enjoy themselves but maybe not the place to take a book and quietly read? I'll let you know once my visit is finished. My aim is to see if there is anything there to read, if it's suitable to reading and will I need my ear plugs or not. I'll take a few photos to share with you. Stay tuned and I'll let you know in the next day or two.
