(Tassie Trip) Day 3 – Richmond

Greetings from the WOTM household where ‘the tennis player’ (hubby) has MAN FLU!  It is not pretty!  Send help if you don’t hear from me for a while!  Not only does he have MAN FLU but he has it for his birthday!  Yes – today is his birthday!!  Not sure that it will be one of his best somehow!  No big cook up of his favourite meal for dinner tonight and chocolate pudding for dessert (his favourite) because he does not have much of an appetite but we’ll see what treats we might be able to come up with that are suitable for a man in a very frail state! 😉

Anyhoo – enough germs and mayhem – let’s have a look at some photo’s from Day 3 of our Tassie trip (which already seems like it was eons ago!).  Unfortunately, with me being unwell and now the tennis player struck down with MAN FLU, I haven’t had time to go through all my photo’s that were taken at Richmond, but I have enough that will give a good representation of beautiful Richmond!  It’s highly likely there are some more Richmond gems in my stash that I might like to share.  If so, I may have to do a Day 3 – Richmond (Part 2) post!

On Day 3 we checked out of our hotel in Hobart and drove to the Salamanca Markets where we spent the morning.  I didn’t take my camera to the markets.  I wanted to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy myself.  I did take a few snaps with my phone and they can be seen on my Instagram.

After the markets, we headed off to historical Richmond – about a 20 minute drive North-East of  Hobart and checked in to our gorgeous little cottage – ‘Bridge Cottage‘ (Armoury) that was built by convicts back in 1823.  We had lunch at the Richmond Bakery – absolutely AMAZING pies – I kid you not!  I highly recommend the place if you are ever there!   We went to the Richmond Arms Hotel for dinner and had a fabulous roast dinner each!

    Oh my. I am really loving this Tassie photos of yours. Tasmania Tourism should pay you a commission …

    Gorgeous photos. We are hoping to tour Tasmania one day. We just seem so much further away now that we’ve moved to Perth.

      Thanks Raychael! Perth certainly is quite a distance away! I’m sure you’ll get to Tassie eventually. It certainly took me a long time of wanting to go before I got there! I hope to go back again one day too 🙂

    Autumn is such a great time to travel,I just love the colours of that Tree Min!

      Autumn is the perfect time to visit Tassie! O.M.G. – the trees and the leaves had me spellbound! 🙂

    Min again your photos are excellent. My favourite two are Richmond Bridge – Up close and personal and the very next one of the tree with the Golden Leaves of Autumn. If you want to bring some calming autumn music into your home that will help your husband rest and get over his flu and will bring some reflection to your mind have a listen to an album called Something Almost Being Said – Music of Bach and Schubert played by the renowned New York pianist Simone Dinnerstein. It will touch you both.

      Thanks so much Patrick! So many more Richmond photos yet to be looked through and edited. I’ll have to google the music you mention as soothing and calming music would be most welcome in this germ filled house at present! lol

      Thanks Kirsty! It’s beautiful and the history is fascinating! Well and truly worth a visit 🙂
