Tasmanian Dream: Day 3

Monday, 14th January 2019

Yet another amazing day exploring beautiful Tasmania with our family.

facetune_14-01-2019-15-21-52After a quick and easy check out of our hotel, we started our day by exploring the beautiful Cataract Gorge (Andrew, Millie & myself).

Nothing but us, blue skies and new adventures.

The gorge was stunning. We did the short Suspension bridge walk, as Millie insisted on walking most of the way. We saw Pademelons (small wallabies) and peacocks. Millie loved the Pademelons so much. During our walk in the bottom of the gorge, we even found Scottish Thistles. I thought it was a sign. Andrew thought I was nuts. But our hotel in Launceston was DIRECTLY opposite a Bagpipe museum. If these aren’t signs that I am meant to marry my Andrew McIntyre then I don’t know what it. But to be completely honest (and kinda sappy) I’ve known with all my facetune_14-01-2019-21-27-45heart & soul that I was meant to marry him.

After the gorge, we headed to a beautiful little Swiss village called Grindelwald (yes, like the villain in Fantastic Beasts). It was stunning (as you can tell for the picture). Here we met up with both Andrew and my parents for a quick morning tea and look at a few of the little shops. Then we headed down the road to pick up some local roadside cherries before we headed out to Sheffield.

We decided (well our GPS decided) that today was the day for back roads. It was amazing to see a different side of this state than just the highways.

We were going to have lunch in Sheffield but no one was facetune_14-01-2019-15-45-44hungry so we so we had a look around at some of the shops. One of the antique shops had an old piano out the front that was meant to be played and Millie loved banging on it. She had so much fun. Just like her little one at home but bigger. We also had a look at the glass blowing and a marble maker. It was fascinating to watch.

Once we had done the rounds of Sheffield we got back in the car and headed out to Devon port for the night. We had dinner at a sushi restaurant and then took a little bit of a drive around town then called it for an early night.

Tomorrow we check in to Cradle Mountain Lodge for a few nights of luxury and our wedding. Can not believe how fast it has come up. Will keep you all posted as we draw in yet another day closer.
