Salamanca Markets and the next week in Hobart
Our nine days of Christmas in Launceston were very enjoyable. We did absolutely none of the tourist things. It was a period of catch up, good food, good company and a small amount of concentration on avoiding the excesses of Christmas.
We headed back to Hobart on the 27th December to pick up our Quantum from storage at the Treasure Island Caravan Park and set up again for our stay over the next eight days. The best part about being grey nomads is that we only require vague plans of what we were going to do. Top of our list were: Salamanca Markets (Saturdays only), The Taste Festival, MONA (The Museum OF New and Old Art) and the usual tourist haunts such as Battery Point, Mt Wellington and a city tour.
On Saturday morning we went to the Salamanca Markets. It was a very pleasant morning with us just strolling around and doing very little shopping.
Tomorrow we are going down to Constitution Dock to see some of the first boats to arrive from the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.
