the adventures of Peg and Dale in Tasmania




Hi everyone, I bet you thought we had just disappeared , well we haven’t we have been very very busy…….

Googy girl, gadget boy and Miss S took us across the Tasman sea . . . . . . . .




On this . . . . . . . .

The seas were very rough and we were very glad that Miss S took us into her bed and kept us company.

But we woke to a beautiful day in Tasmania

For the first week or so we stayed at Launceston we went to see so many things


We went to Cataract Gorge


Yep we did some modeling


And we got to ride across the gorge on a chair lift, it was a little nerve racking


We got to meet this young man, he was very strange when he met us he made some strange noises and his tail stood right up on end…….very strange

We go to visit some heritage homes



Here we are waiting at the gate



Clarendon House

We went for a very long drive and visited the Bridstowe lavender farm, unfortunately the lavender wasn’t out but it was a very interesting place and googy girl did lot’s of shopping



We then helped out with hooking up the van and headed to the east coast, whilst there we got to see lot’s of things we seen the bay of fires, some penguins, a blow hole. Unfortunately one day we had to stay at the van, because the family went out on a boat and they were a little concerned that we would blow away….it was ok though because we got to sleep in………



The bay of fires

We then packed up again and headed south, we spent two glorious days wandering around the port Arthur historic site, it was really interesting. We also got to see some Tasmanian devils…..they make the strangest sounds….like a cat having it’s tail pulled


This one seemed to be a little too interested in us


We are now in Hobart, today we went shopping at the Salamanca Markets, tomorrow we are heading to a museum…..so much to see and do.
