Moving to Hobart - First few days

Last few weeks I have been trudging (well driving) across Australia from Adelaide to Hobart. Before leaving Adelaide we had a small farewell. Even though my Facebook estimate was 12, I invited other people on the side and the total headcount came to 28.

The next few days were spent on the road and on the ferry, Adelaide-Melboune(and environs)-Devonport (and environs)-Hobart. We went to several national parks near Devonport. Narawntapu along the coast where we saw crabs swarming along the beach.

Then we had a close-up with a wombat at the Cradle Mountain National park. Finally we got to Hobart and had a "Bah Humbug Christmas"(according to the organizers) at the waterworks park.

In a few days we watched "Wild Oats" sail into Hobart marking beginning of the end of the Sydney to Hobart race. More exciting summer things to do in Hobart coming up.
