Last days in Tasmania

After my busy trip to my sisters wedding my plan to go for a run the next morning did not eventuate. Instead we took it easy around the house before walking down to the local cafe so that Seerung could introduce me to a lovely couple that she had met the day before who had close ties with Thailand.

After lunch and a quick drive to see the location of a few schools we spent the remainder of the day playing in the sand and splashing in the ocean. It was a little too cold to get too wet!

After showers we had dinner outside before going for a walk to the playground which is only two blocks away before having an early night. The photos below were taken during two different visits to the playground.

We had a game of volleyball on the beach to keep us entertained while we ate.

The following morning was to be our last full day in Tasmania. It started well with Ariya cooking us all pancakes.

As we are on the road so often I don’t completely stop homeschooling in a traditional sense. Diaries still have to be written in and some Mathematics completed. Here they are catching on on their diaries / journals.

With that complete we headed out for a short road trip, this time looking at the lay of the land out past the Hobart airport. We had a picnic in a park as well as parking up at the end of the runway and watching a jet take off right over our head.

For the remainder of the day it was decided to once again hit the beach and the playground before finishing our Tasmanian experience with one last icecream from the corner shop as the last light faded from view.

We went a little further down the beach this time and found a place where a stream flowed into the ocean. This time the kids were a lot braver and the all ended up completely soaked!

Lifetime memories are made during moments like this.

It was a magical time for all of us but especially for me. I just loved the place and cannot wait to go back again. The time spent with family with the kids at such a beautiful age will never be forgotten. Memories for a lifetime have been made and I can’t wait to add more!

  2. I know the girls will never regret writing those diaries, even if they don’t like doing it right now. Those are real treasures that will help them remember these beautiful moments!
