Winter Woolly Weekend

Festival of Voices

Bring on more winter festivals in Hobart I say!  The city turned on the winter weather for the Opening Night of the Festival of Voices – First Light.  Like the Dark MOFO Opening Night we rugged up, grabbed the brollie and braved the teeming rain.  It was lovely standing by the fire but after an hour of that rain Nick and I looked at each other and agreed to call it quits.  It was such a shame as it would have been lovely standing under the twinkling lights of Salamanca and the stars, but it wasn’t to be.

The rest of our weekend was very quiet with a visit to the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery for a spot of culture on a wet Saturday morning.

Sunday morning was a different story altogether.  Hobart was bathed in spectacular sunshine with a blanket of snow on Mt Wellington.
