Can you see the ghostly seagull?
An impromptu #sunset wander around Hobart’s waterfront, and chats with the delightful @sam_clarkey as she visits this beautiful little island of ours.
I really enjoy observing, and listening, as a first time visitor describes and discovers Tasmania’s beauty for themselves - and there’s so much more to explore yet!
Welcome to Tassie @sam_clarkey :)

It’s hump day, the sun is shining brightly outside, and I’m dreaming of far off lands that captivated my soul.
I’m not one for architecture shots, but the cute, storybook-esque homes on Île d’Orléans, with their brightly coloured doors, shutters and snow covered roofs, so pleasantly ignited my imagination and curiosity.

During last nights #sunset, @jayedevil and I were hoping for a repeat of Sundays epic evening - where dolphins swam by us - but alas, they were a no-show.
Instead, we had to make do with these colours in the sky and lichen covered rocks. Tough, I know.
iPhone photo goodness. (at Tranmere)
When sunset doesn’t erupt in a blaze of glory, I go looking for other points of interest.
That’s often just a pleasing composition, a lovely textured rock, or if I’m out with @loves_laughs we’ll seek out coffee 😂
This rock caught my eye, with it’s roughness, but also the way it almost seems to float above the water.

This was just a quick #lovethywalrus_video during last nights sunset in Hobart.
Oh, and then I looked up and here was a pod of dolphins! One of the few times I thought…gee, if only my phone could zoom in! Haha!

Who loves auroras?
I think we’re incredibly lucky here in #Tasmania to be able see the #aurora, even at times from within our cities and towns.
And it amazes me how few people in Australia seem to realise they can see it from their own country.
This was from Saturday night, on Howrah Beach - in suburban Hobart.

There’s better ways of getting people’s attention, but few are as fun as setting fire to fluffy bits of metal and waving it about in the night air like a crazy person.

That’s moi with my hand up the burning ring of fire. #selfie
Thanks to @jayedevil for working the shutter on my camera.
As promised - here’s my view of last nights #auroraaustralis over Hobart, #Tasmania.
Hobart is @Australia’s only capital city where you can see this gloriously beautiful, natural light show, right from the city itself.
Myself and @jayedevil @loves_laughs and @lifecatchme were relaxing on the beach after our fun #gramitwithalocal1 #instameet, and couldn’t believe the show we were seeing from the #southernlights, with the twinkling city lights underneath.
A truly wonderful experience, and even better to be shared with kind friends.
