Day 29 - 22nd October
Lilydale to Launceston and return
Distance Travelled - 65 km
I was out of bed by just after 8.30 am and after a quick check outside for potential subjects to photograph I was back inside having breakfast and then spent some time reading. Checked a few things on the computer and then got ready to go into town.
Drove into Mowbray and did the washing, got fuelled up for the trip to Cradle Mountain tomorrow, had a look through a few shops and then went for a bit of a drive around the outskirts of Launceston looking at some of the older buildings etc before returning home.
Spent the rest of the afternoon reading and researching stuff on the computer ready for the trip tomorrow as well as spending a bit of time on the yard getting a few photos, very few shots and hardly worth posting. Found out later that Shane had ended up at the doctor with a severe asthma attack - Michelle had arrived home just in time to take him to the doctor. I was upstairs unaware of the seriousness of the situation below.
Michelle organised a yummy tea of sushi and noodles and the rest of the night was spent chatting about various things, watching TV and discussing photos. Very much a lazy day today which was probably a good thing as the next few could be quite busy.
Tomorrow I will head off and go to Westbury and Deloraine to look through a few galleries and craft places on the way to Cradle Mountain and then, depending on the arrival time, I will decide whether just to set up camp or go in and start having a look. At this stage the plan is to be back in Lilydale by Monday night at the latest ready to take the car for servicing on Tuesday morning in readiness to drive to Devonport and start the journey home with the ferry leaving Wednesday night.
