Tassie Trip Photo's

I've uploaded my photos from my Tassie Holiday click here to view

What tha

Just going through my photos.
I said when I was at St Columba falls I felt something while I was there.
Look at this photo, bottom left, to me it looks like a face within the yellow 'flame'.
This was taken with my mobile phone, the same photo with my normal camera doesn't contain it.

Home Safe

Made it home safe, it's good to be home.

a tassie wilderness

the wind blows, blowing she blows
where does she come from, where does he go?
invisible breeze, mysterious wind, the spirit covers, revives, renews
ever present, ever new, within, without, encircles around.
blisful mountain greens and raging streams.
rivers flowing, trickling streams.
echos of the past, what does the future hold?
gIory be to God who has given us the light.

and i found music

my trip ended great, few of us went out & found some live music in North Hobart @ The Alley Cat - great pub great atmosphere
james annesley quartet
james perry band (really good vocalist)
emily stuart.
