It was a late finish from the presentation last night, and although we had hoped to have sushi, it was all we could do to stagger across the road to Mures Fish Cafe and order some grilled fish for dinner. It was close to 10:00pm when we finished, and fell asleep very easily. Getting up during the night resulted in a deep cut in my left eyebrow which gave me an impressive ghoulish quality as the blood had ringed my eyes and dripped down my face like an effigy of Alice Cooper.

Bob had arranged a meeting in town, and I had ,uncharacteristically, won a random draw prize of a voucher for the Athletes Foot in Hobart Town. I thought that I would end up with a couple of pairs of socks, but ended up with a rather cool pair of clumpy waterproof Teva clogs that were on special for the same amount as my voucher. Good for getting the wood in winter!

We then headed down to the Huon Valley and ended up at the former courthouse in Franklin for lunch, Petty Sessions. We shared a Rocket and Parmesan Salad and abalone Balls, before locally farmed Salmon and Rainbow Trout. It was very good and great value.

Too soon, we returned to Hobart, stopping off for ice cream cones and buying some smoked Wahhou at Mures before driving to my mothers on the Tasman peninsula. We managed to get out of the house for a swim late that afternoon, first trying a rocky beach in the bay, before driving, still in our wetsuits, caps and goggles, to Pirates Bay Beach at Eaglehawk Neck. Here the surf wasn't large, but broke in sets of perfect waves great for body surfing, and the extra buoyancy of our wetsuits made it so much easier!

So ~ not much exercise today, but a great day nevertheless.
