Snapped this image of canola growing along the Midland Highway on our way home today. The inset photo is of a lovely old stone Georgian building, now used as a post office in the village of Avoca in the Fingal Valley.
husband was keen to see vintage steam engines and vintage cars so we let him go off on his owndaughter and i alternated between finding shady places to cool off and looking at all the displays, including one by the sheffield spinners
there was even a toy story bouncy castle, but we resisted the temptation to have a go (it was too hot)a steam train ran regularly, taking passengers who were waiting at the historic railway station (unfortunately i omitted to photograph them)i learned that tasmanian fine ice creams are absolutely delicious (i had the lemon cheesecake flavour)
lots of vintage machinery (many in working order) were on show, including this ‘mystery object’, which we thought might be a grain thresher
