Stanley Nut?

 Was the pic taken from the top of the Stanley Nut? When visiting there I chatted with the lass operating the chairlift about things dropped while going up and down, promptly nearly lost a thong half way up with it dangling off one toe.

When sailing a trawler over from Auckland via Eden to Fremantle we got a right belting coming across the Tasman sea and after refuelling at Eden had a 40knot northeaster for the run down to Wilson's Prom and Bass strait was like the pic, mirror flat for the next 2 days

 Had the absolute pleasure to eat dinner at Herseys Seafood (from Aussi Lobster Men ) tonight,  crayfish salad, tassie scallops, pepperberry salt and pepper squid and fresh gummy.  Great to see a fishing family cutting out the middle men, wholesalers etc and providing direct to the public.  More power to them, could not fault the meals and despite it being a Monday evening the place was deservedly packed.

 I went down and played golf

 I went down and played golf at Barnbougle 3 years in a row in August. 


The idea sounds crazy but only once did we have to wait out a light shower.


I saw bass straight mirror glassy although over cast.


Great course, if I was going again I'd take a punt on the winter weather and avoid the crowds.


Bloody good place is Tas!

Everyone's just winging it.
