We headed down last Thursday and went shopping and swimming before heading to tea. We don't have Boost Juice in Launceston, so we always love getting it when we are in Hobart for a special treat.
Sarah and her boys introduced us to Burger Haus last time we went down, so we were keen to go there for tea with Tim and Helene.
Because it's the middle of winter we were waiting to see what the weather was going to be like before deciding what we would do on Friday. I was keen to go to Bruny Island if the weather was okay and Tim and Helene had never been before and were wanting to go on one of the walks to a lookout. The weather turned out so nice - it was cool but sunny with not very much wind, so it was the perfect winter's day.
Harri was actually feeling quite sick so there was no way that he was up to going for a walk, so we left Tim and Helene to the walking and decided to just take it easy. Last time we went to Bruny Island we went on the cruise and didn't have time to stop at the lookout on the way past, so we made sure we walked to the top this time.
Crazy Kobe started doing pushups half way up!
Adventure Bay is so beautiful and it was such a lovely sunny day, so we went back to the car and grabbed a blanket, some food and a footy.
Poor Harri felt really sick. He was dosing up on Panadol all day and trying to keep his temp down because as soon as it went up he would feel rotten again. He kept saying 'sorry for ruining the day' as he knew we would've been walking with Tim and Helene if he felt okay. I told him it was okay as I was actually loving just relaxing on the beach. I find it so therapeutic just sitting, listening to the waves.
That night a bonfire was on at Salamanca for the Festival of Voices with lots of different groups singing, so Jay and I joined Tim and Helene there. Harri was more than happy to stay with Sarah and Joe and their kids, and so was Kobe as they love hanging out with their boys. It was cool to have the whole crowd joining in with the singing.
It was so busy but they didn't mind us coming in and wanting a big table and found space for us. The food was amazing!
Saturday was another beautiful sunny day. We walked down to the Wharf to meet Dan and Lou for brunch.
I have never had pancakes with bacon and maple syrup before, and it was on the menu so both Dan and I had that. It was so yummy! Everyone loved what they got and Harri said it was 'the best food he's ever had!'.
We had a quick look around Salamanca Market before we went back into the city for a bit of shopping. It was lovely to run into people we knew at the market.
Tasmanian Mother of the Year ceremony this year, I went there with my friend Chelsea and have gone on about the beautiful dessert that I had ever since. I had to make sure I took a raspberry caramel crunch home with me.
