Geoffs Life After Work !

Life is just beginning

Hobart and average top of 21%C !!

Its absolutely lovely here BUT the average temperatures (for me) spoil it !!tis mid Summer and we have had average 14% these past days and we are here for a week !!! Just a bit of info on the place for those interested people
Founded in 1804 as a penal colony,Hobart is Australia’s second oldest capital city after Sydney. In 2009, the city had a greater area population of approximately 212,019. A resident of Hobart is known as a “Hobartian”. The city is located in the state’s south-east on the estuary of the Derwent River. The skyline is dominated by Mount Wellington at 1,271 metres (4,170 ft) high.Violent conflict with the European settlers, and the effects of diseases brought by them, completely destroyed the aboriginal population, which was rapidly replaced by free settlers and the convict  population. The harbour has lots of cafes and touristy stuff BUT a bit on the expensive side Annie LOVES the cold BUTme being a Pomm had enough COLD in my English past life !!

The above images were photographed in Hobarts Dockland
