As some followers remarked on earlier postings, my selection of past photos on different walk stages has given me a chance to ‘relive’ the experiences. Here are some favourites from the last 4 stages of my walk along the Derwent River.
I love the Hobart wharf area with its crab and other fishing vessels.
I love the pretty 19th century buildings lining Hunter St, one of the first settled areas in Hobart.
I love the drama of the Federation Concert Hall where the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra presents great performances.
No water is spared. The Parliamentary gardens are always lush and green.
I love the juxtaposition of the old and new: at Wrest Point Casino; at Lower Sandy Bay’s Blinking Billy against new modern houses.
Fresh beaches. Serenity.
Coastal walking tracks.
The heritage listed Shot Tower near Taroona
A rough bark and branch ‘hut’ near a track. Shelter from any rain?
Natural rock caves
The sun. The reflections.
Looking at, listening to, smelling the bush.
And I appreciate the glories of introduced trees and man-made vistas.
Collectively these images provide a reminder of what sits beside the Derwent River as it flows from New Norfolk to its mouth.
