The Taste of Huon and Surrounds

This trip was partly because it was our 20th wedding anniversary this week but also because it was a long weekend and we wanted to check out The Taste Huon festival.

So lets back peddle a night or so where we had a nice romantic dinner at home for our anniversary, cooked by master chef dad of course :)

We accidentally deleted the entree pic but it was a yummy oysters with bacon on a pea mash ;)

So after a nice night and after school and work we headed off to Huonville late in the afternoon.

Its all too much for one.........lucky she doesn't read our blog she would kill me for showing this pic ;)

The 3 hour drive down south is uneventful.

Its not long until we arrive in the big city

And about half an hour after that we get to the Huonville Caravan Park

We find a nice spot right on the river and set up.

The caravan park is a bit like a farm stay as they have their own stock which you can feed.

The next day we went for a drive down to Geeveston taking in any sights along the way.

Later in the afternoon we had a bit of a look around Huonville

And later that night we went and fed the animals around the caravan park.

Pigs Arse!

Awwww lol

And then we were attacked by aliens

The next day we went into the big smoke to do a bit of shopping and have a look at the museum.

After the day out in Hobart we came back to camp to watch the owner shear a sheep.

This is a new breed of tasmanian sheep ;)

After a nice roast turkey tea we sat around the fire for the rest of the night.

And some of us caught up with the world via the internet ;)

The next morning we went to the Taste of Huon festival.

And proceeded to eat and drink the fine local produce all day :)

We then went and had a look at the harbour at huonville late in the afternoon. Tried to get on a cruise but they weren't running tonight.

We then spent the rest of the day at the caravan park sitting on the green grass listening to a one man band sign in the large camp kitchen.

The next morning we packed up and came home after a great few days down south.
Oh and of course we stopped at the shops on the way home because we don't have big shops where we live ;)
