Saturday in Hobart was the quintessential winter’s day. A clear, frosty morning making way for the most beautiful still day.
No Saturday sleep-in for our household with Poppy and James up and at ‘em by 6:30am. After mooching about at home for a while we decided to head out for breakfast, only to realise T42 didn’t open for another half-an-hour! Like desperadoes, we went for a wander to the Salamanca Market and returned to savour a hearty breakfast.
My boat-loving husband has just taken his hobby to a whole new level and picked up a steal on Gumtree with this 1978 original Pride Cheetah fibreglass boat, or as Poppy calls it:
Daddy’s speedy boat!
Nick justified his purchase by admitting it was a present for James’ 1st birthday. Mmmmmm – I’m not sure about that??
We all piled into this little beauty from the 70′s, complete with orange vinyl ‘back-to-back’ seats and took it for a spin on a beautifully calm Derwent River. The Captain was very happy because:
A: His daughter kept asking him to go faster
B: His son fell into a deep slumber en route
C: His reticent wife had a smirk on her face!
Looks like we will be water-skiing and wake-boarding this summer!
