A brief trip to Hobart, Tasmania

 Today's postings show some variety in the building styles in and around Hobart.

These shots were taken in Cygnet, south-west of Hobart -  the centre of fruit growing in the Huon Valley where vibrant apple, cherry and berry orchards line the hills.

 
The country township is popular among artists, musicians and those seeking alternative and relaxed lifestyles. The town's residents are creative and dynamic - inspired by pristine scenery. 









This seemed an imaginative use of a former bank building!

Hobart is delightful and I always love vistiting there. You have taken some great shots, Valerie.

Thanks for the visit. Always had a soft spot for Tazzy though never managed to get there. Everything I hear about it seems to suit me and you've just added to its reported charms. Have a good week.

Oh! I could see myself sipping tea out on the verandah of that top house ... very elegant!
