Year 5 Day 50 Return to Hobart

21 March 2012 | Hobart, Tasmania, AU
Dave/Heavy Rain
The rain that was threatening yesterday finally arrived in the early morning and continued all day. Thus, the drive back to Hobart was a wet one. While it slowed our driving around the many tight curves that dominate the drive to Hobart from Queenstown, we actually made the trip in about 30 less minutes. Since it was so wet outside, we did not stop along the way to take pictures or sightsee at the various vistas. This saved us considerable time and resulted in making the drive in just 3.5 hours.

The photo to this blog gives you an inkling to how hard it was raining. The photo shows a little waterfall along the side of the road as we drove up the mountain from Queenstown. When we arrived to Queenstown a few days ago, this waterfall was not there. Also, the waterfall is partially obscured by fat raindrops hitting the windshield. I had the wipers on and Mary Margaret took this picture by timing the passing of the wipers. Thus, in just a fraction of a second, the windshield was mostly covered again by the raindrops and thus, obscuring the photo.

We are staying again in the convict cottage in Hobart where we stayed before. It will be for just one night as we leave by plane for Melbourne tomorrow afternoon. We will be returning to the Grand Hotel in Melbourne and will be staying for two days. This will give us one more chance to take in the sights before we fly to Perth on Saturday, the 24th.
