tassie highlights...last one (almost) and a request

I'm drafting this on Thursday night; I can hear the Australian Open tennis on the tv in the living room. Lleyton's behind in the first set and already this holiday feels like it happened so long ago.  I wasn't ready to go back to work on Wednesday, but was even less ready for the funeral I had to attend that afternoon. Rudi, a very lovely man, husband to an extraordinary and equally lovely woman Kirsty, was lost to cancer at only 45. Not at all fair. So, I'm probably not in the best frame of mind for blog posting, but I reckon I can manage some more pretty pictures of Tassie J
I was going to say 'historic' Richmond, but that pretty much describes everything in Tasmania! The weather wasn't kind to us that day...even the ducks were sheltering under the picnic tables.
Pooley Wines:
Incredibly beautiful property (look, the vineyard cat even matched) , lovely people (in fact I think everyone in Tassie is lovely) and the Sparkling Pinot wasn't bad either!
Pirates Bay:
The middle picture is a part of the bay called the Tessellated Pavement. I recorded a lovely little movie on my camera of the waves coming in over the rocks. It's very peaceful but I can't work out how to put it on here so that it's not at 90 degrees, i.e. you have to be horizontal to watch it! It's probably not the right time for a lie-down so never mind L
Yep, good old Aussie 'something or other'...not quite sure what!  Doo-Google know you want to. I had to bring home a postcard of course. 
Lleyton's lost the first set to Andy Roddick but is ahead in the second. 
And you know what...I think I'm going to stop here...I've run out of puff!  Port Arthur and Battery Point will have to wait for another day. And then that will be it, I promise!
Well, who would have thought...the match is at a set each!
early morning update: poor Andy had to retire hurt. Lleyton was gracious and I'm off to the first friday morning breakfast of the year with the girls.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend. While you're doing your weekend things, sharing the mundane or the marvellous with people you love, could you please stop for a little moment and say a quiet prayer for my courageous friend Kirsty...that would be lovely if you could.

  1. My God - that could be Richmond, Surrey!

  2. Hello Kerry:
    We echo the thoughts of Tom above. The first images could be England but not, of course, in winter.

    How very, very sad for your friend Kirsty. Our thoughts and prayers are indeed with her. Such an appalling burden to bear.

  3. Mary here: I took a look at your Richmond photos and thought they look like Richmond, North Yorkshire near Catterick. The bridge is similar to the one the kids used to swim near! I have so enjoyed being on holidays with you through your gorgeous photos and lovely descriptions as always. It looks like you and Richard had a wonderful holiday.

    And so sorry for your friend Kirsty. Her husband was so young. My prayers are with her and you.

    PS Has anyone ever figured out why we non-bloggers can't comment except as anonymous any more? I can't find any info.

  4. I'll say a prayer for your friend Kirsty. It's all too sad. 2012 had better start lifting its game as far as I'm concerned.

    Your photos of (I was about to type 'Ireland'!) Tasmania are really something else. It's very English/Irish, yet Australian at the same time. Just beautiful. We live in the best country in the world. It has everything. I hope you have a tranquil weekend.xo

  5. Your photos are so beautiful Kerry. And sorry to hear about your friend. It is such a sad time for many people at the moment it seems. xx

  6. The yellow house to the right of the bridge is one of my favourites and used to belong to friends of ours. Did you go to the blow hole?
    Kerry, you know I will say a prayer for Kirsty. xxx

  7. I'm sorry Mary...I wish I knew the answer! But I quite like you being non-anonymous Mary :)

  8. Oh Kerry:( I am so sorry to hear the sad news about your friend Rudi. Sending all my best to his wife, Kirsty. Thanks for sharing your AMAZING pics of seriously should be put on the Tassie tourism payroll!! ~ xx

  9. Sending my thoughts to Kirsty, just so terribly sad. So difficult for her but it was good that you were able to make the funeral. Hugs x

  10. wow that's taken me back!! richmond, doo town, all of it. can't wait for a chance to go again someday, loved it when i was there years ago.

    glad you had a great trip darl xxx

  11. Oh Kerry. Life's highs and lows. My thoughts are with sweet Kirsty. And yes, it's a relief you were back in time for the funeral. J x

  12. Kerry, suas imagens nos transportam a locais bucólicos e tranquilos, e neste relaxamento fazemos uma prece silenciosa para seus amigos.

  13. Hi - I'm from Tasmania - infact you took a lovely picture of my house there! Also great photos of the pooley household and mill-house - try living in the town! Hvae grown up there and because it's such a small place - everyone knows everyone (and small town gossip is ripe!)
    The cat's name is Porche and her brother is rex - also a mad dog named digger should have been running around there somewhere!

    GREAT PHOTOS! (i'll put in a good word at the tourism bureau!)
