Last week was a pretty good week. I was able to get out and about and noticed a few really lovely things. Hope your week was okay too.
I went to the library and because I got a good car park I was able
to take time for a cup of coffee in the library cafe. Notice how coffee
always plays a part in my "sweet weeks" ?
I went to the garden store and bought some colour
to give to my little Buddhist monk I have in the back patio
area for Easter. I thought he looked most Easter-y.
This is the coffee shop we meet at in Eastern Hobart. It is called
Moto-Vechio and they have restored motorbikes around the
edges of it. Old tables and chairs and big couches to sit on.
They also give our Ulysses motorbike club a 10% discount.
We stop by here before our midweek fortnightly rides to socialise.
Back in town again I was walking back to the spot I had parked
my motorbike and between two large buildings this tribute
to Antarctica was on display. I forget that there are sculptures
around the city at different points celebrating Mawson's adventures
and Antarctica. Hobart is the last point south in Australia before
you get to Antarctica and we are known as the Gateway to Antarctica.
Many of their big ships come here. I love these penguin sculptures.
