Big Red Wheel

My dad came back to Tassie for another visit last Saturday, his second since I moved here in 2005. He was here about a year ago and we had a wonderful time exploring this wonderful little state. This year’s visit was no different.


I had plans for us all day Monday and dad wanted to drive to Launceston and stay for a night so I planned that for Tuesday and Wednesday, and as dad was flying back home on Thursday, that only left Sunday to fill in. We went for brunch at a cafe in Salamanca Square and as I had left some brochures on the table at home for dad to have a look through to see what he might like to do, he picked the Tasmanian Transport museum to go and browse around, so that’s where we went in the afternoon.

 

For brunch we went to the Machine Cafe (see previous review), always a favourite of mine, then after brunch wandered around Salamanca and went to the deli to buy the supplies we needed for the week. My dad wanted to cook dinner for my friends and me on Wednesday night so we needed to buy the ingredients for his traditional German meal (things I didn't happen to have in my pantry).  Then we headed home for a quick pit stop before going to the museum.
