Christmas in Smithton, New Year in Hobart

Christmas Day was spent at RiverBreeze Caravan park and mother nature finally turned on the best weather we could have asked for.  Beautiful blue skies, sunshine and the perfect temperature. Lunch was taken on the deck overlooking the Duck River. We were joined by Bob, our new mate who lives at the park.


The menu included seafood, cold meat, mashed potatoes, and was washed down with champagne! We also enjoyed a very tasty homemade Christmas cake that was kindly given to us back in July before we left Perth. Cathy, the wife of Paul, a friend and former work colleague of Ray, made the cake and it was soooo yummy.

After a very enjoyable and relaxing lunch, we sat chatting and laughing the afternoon away. Before we knew it, Greg, the owner arrived and the evening festivities began. A wonderful buffet meal followed by a show from the big boys and their toys!

On the 29th December we finally arrived back in Hobart. Two weeks in Smithton turned into over two months! But we wanted to see the yachts from the Sydney to Hobart race and go to the Taste of Tasmania New Year’s Eve celebrations.

So farewell to an amazing 2016 and welcome to 2017 and all the new adventures and experiences to come!
