Richmond, Tasmania

Missy the Smithfield from Richmond, Tasmania

Missy with Nes and Ed

We are in Richmond Tasmania, about 30 minutes from Hobart. Richmond is an old colonial town with many stone buildings from the early to mid 19th century. Its a popular tourist destination because people like to connect with the past and many of the buildings have been nicely restored and made functional. The oldest Anglican and Catholic churches are here and the oldest bridge, which was built by convicts in 1823.

We are house and dog minding for six weeks while the owners, Jan and Marjan are in France for a holiday. Missy, the pure bred Smithfield, gets two walks per day and loves to swim in the river and round up the ducks. Its the beginning of spring and Wattle is in blossom all over, creating a beautiful fragrance in the air.


Bruny Island

The Neck, Bruny Island

View over The Neck that joins the North and South parts of Bruny Island

Bruny Island is at the southern tip of Tasmania, Australia.
It is made up of a North and South Island which are separated by a narrow isthmus called The Neck. Access to the island is by vehicular ferry departing from Kettering. The trip takes about 15 minutes and arrives at Roberts Point on North Bruny. The island has a population of around 620 and is about 100 kilometres in length.
The neck is home to the Truganini Lookout – a wooden stepped boardwalk that takes you to spectacular 360° panoramic views of the Bruny Island coastline, both ocean and channel
In contrast to the north, South Bruny is hilly, heavily timbered and includes rainforest areas. The townships of Adventure Bay, Alonnah and Lunawanna are also located on South Bruny as well as the Cape Bruny Lighthouse that stands atop some of the tallest sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere.
Bruny Island offers tantalising locally produced food such as hand made fudge, chocolate, truffles, berries, cheese and fresh oysters. Bruny Island is also home to Australia’s southern-most vineyard and there are some excellent restaurants and cafés scattered across the island’s townships. 



Preparing food in Hobart for our hosts

Arrived in Hobart three days ago. Friend Bronwen from Melbourne is with us.

Looking for long term accommodation and venues to teach success using ancient wisdom of the East. The principles of prosperity and well-being are timeless and universal. They are the key to unlocking the hidden potential in business and your life. We will be teaching this wisdom as an evening course in Hobart over the next few weeks.
