Weekend in Tasmania

We had a weekend in Tasmania a few weeks ago, and  had a few hours to look around before going to the airport. Some friends told us about Richmond, so we went to have a look.

This area around the river is very pretty. It was very cold, but there were a few people. If the weather was good, I could sit here for hours...

This is Richmond Bridge – Australia’s oldest bridge still in use, It dates back to 1823.

It also has Australia’s oldest Roman Catholic Church.

Unfortunately not many shops were opened since it was a Sunday. We visited a souvenir shop, a pub and a sweet shop, then left for the airport. It was nice to have seen Richmond. I only wish that the weather had been better. The sun came out a little bit, we felt extremely cold walking around.

I am early for Skywatch this week :), hope you are having a good week.

I looks cold. You'll need to return on a warmer Saturday, perhaps?!

Beautiful place. Love the variety, from scenic to old bridge to beautiful chapel.
