Travels of a Zen Dog "He knows not where he's going For the ocean will decide - It's not the destination......It's the glory of the ride" - quote by Edward Monkton

One of the places I had most been looking forward to visiting was Tasmania. I went there 15 years ago and really enjoyed it so I wanted to return to see some of the places that I missed first time round. Arriving in Launceston I hired a car and set off for Penguin to see some more of my ex-family. It was so good to see them again and after staying a day with them I continued to Cradle Mountain. The weather was perfect for a walk there, which is not usually the case - the mountain is usually covered with cloud. Continued on to Strahan on the west coast then Hobart and up to Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park before returning to Hobart. I drove 1200km in the week that I had the car and I think that I have now seen everything that I want to see in Tas, but I am sure that I will return one day.
