Saturday, out

Friday afternoon, I drove to our second accommodation. Hobart had a very big weekend with a few different events on, so booking a hotel was VERY hard! We managed to secure a room at the Salamanca Terrace's. One of our favourite places in Hobart is Salamanca! It has this lovely feel about it, feels like old time! There are lots of great trendy shops, Art Galleries, cafes and pubs..... I tell you, this place gets VERY busy at night time!

Saturday morning, we headed out to the famous Salamanca Markets. This is the view after stepping out of the Terraces:

After a bit of shopping, we walked over to the Marina to check out the Wooden Boat Festival. There was some AMAZING boats there!

The black one looked like a Pirate Ship, the photo's I took of it on its own didn't turn out too crash hot, so this one will do:

We spent a couple of hours there, walking along, enjoying the boats, entertainment and music!

A view at one of the Marina's of only a portion of the boats:

This boat there was VERY intricate:

Lots of detail:

Is nice to get away. And, I did manage to do some stitching too.... Will share later!

Sounds like you had a great "holiday" break, Sarah. Pity Dennis had to work ~ nope, of course not, otherwise you wouldn't have been able to do ALL the things you did :)

Sarah said...

SO good you enjoyed Hobart : o )

That hotel would be a perfect stay away = very central...

Isabella said...

The Terraces now that one is good !!! LOL looks like you both had fun after Denise was done with work.

What a great holiday! We saw that white ship in your first photo when we were in Salamanca. It's a lovely part of Tas.

Looks like you had a lovely time Sarah! Lots of lovely things to see; the boats are amazing and to visit The Quilted Crow would have been awesome!
