from the sea to the mountains

I find I am not missing living by the sea at all...and who would with mountain views like these to take its place!

Yesterday it was such a lovely day I went for a walk to the edge of town to take a look in The 2nd Hand (furniture) Shed as I'm still looking for bits and pieces of furniture.

The following pictures are what I saw on the way there...


You can still see some snow right on the top of these mountains.  They are part of the Great Western Tiers a mountain range that runs down the middle of Tasmania.




I have a 'thing' about bare branched winter trees :o)





More winter trees!!




The high mountain you can see is Quamby Bluff.

    1. Hi Michelle! I had 2 years by the sea and I did enjoy it, but I am very happy to be near the mountains now.

      I think mountains (and trees) are my favourite too! xx

  5. Hello Lynda,
    I've just discovered your lovely blog. Had a very quick browse through and I know I'm going to really enjoy your writings as I find a bit more time. You have a very serene face.
    I'm sure your new home will be a real blessing to you. We would love to visit Tasmania in our caravan one day.
    Blessings Gail
