Duet says farewell to Hobart. On our last day we visited David Walsh’s private Museum, Mona. (Museum of Old and New Art). It is an astonishing experience that engages all the senses. It is the architecture and how the exhibits are displayed that has the biggest impact on most of the people. I could write pages about the place but I won’t. Instead here are some of  the photographs from  cruising in Tasmania.

we sometimes needed the third reef and can reef a 4th one if we have to making a proper trysail. Thirty five knots always looks nothing in a  photograph!


Some of the highlights were visiting Port Arthur – the abandoned flour mill turned in to a grim gaol.


Apart from the devils, we spotted a spotted Quoll.

We had a great time and here are a few more photos.

So called Cloudy  Bay – stunning beaches everywhere.
