So we head on...next we tried to get into the Snug caravan park - we could only get one night rather that our usual two nights so we kept driving. We ended up at the Cygnet camp site. Cheap as chips but not much really in the way of facilities - another GREAT reason for your own shower and toilet. The Cygnet area is based around the apple trade. There were hand written signs everywhere promoting community events. I wouldn't choose to live here (far too cold I suspect) but I can understand why people do, the community looks tight.
As I said the camping area wasn't great but on the second night we met the most amazing family. Not long after I sat down to plan the next days travel a little girl (named Georgia - sic) came running up to me to check out who was the owner of the little boots under our vans door. The family had been on the road for 6 years...oh so lucky!! We sat around their fire pot, the kids had a great play and we all woke up with headaches. I love meeting new friends on the road.
Our next move was to Seven Mile Beach - through Hobart and on the other side. I LooooovE this caravan park. In the bush - near the beach and CLEAN!!
I headed into town to the MoMa market (pic above and below). I wanted to go and see Sarah and to visit Bec from The Nook in North Hobart ( a shop you should pop into if your into town - her and her shop are very cute).
I checked out the MoMa set up, we would like some gazebos for the Made with Love Market. Somehow I don't think this "look" would suit our market but wouldn't it be nice to have these bean bags lounging about listening to our buskers.
We have had lost of family time and Georgie has been amazing....except when I take too long in shops or she gets bored at the adult activities. Remember I told you we went back to Richmond to get something special - well here it is:
An old time portrait of our family. I love it - Don't we look FAB!!
