You have to go to MONA we were repeatedly told.  Well we did!

What is it?  The most bizarre private collection of old and new artworks and artefacts in the country, Set in an amazing museum space of sandstone, rusted ironwork and lots of glass, it is a spectacle to behold. Now i get pretty bored with these types of activities but did manage to last an hour and a half. Wonders will never cease.

It was so bizarre, such a torture of art and sculpture and installation and absolutely head shaking stuff!  But a priviledge to see!

 Fat car was a porche, still slightly recognisable, what a bizarre and expensive statement about consumerism!

We did manage to see some more of the Derwent river on which Hobart sits, travelling to the museum on the Mona Roma ferry. Try and imagine this panorama, top to bottom is left to right!

I love this photo. The river below actually looks higher than the ground high above we were standingon!  Not bad iphone!

The Mona wharf. How beautiful!

Today was a cloudy day and not so cold and we managed to walk quite a few km as well.

We did also manage a wonderful lunch at the Harbour Lights Cafe which was awarded I Love Food best 2014 cafe and it sure was good!  Recipe past down through the generations for a wonderful egg and meatball lasagne. Delicious!

  1. Sounds to me, that it is a very good thing that you are doing lots of walking with the lots of eating that is being done. The photos are amazing. Tassie is such a beautiful part of the word.
