Around the island we go

sunny 34 °C

Well after a wonderful week in Melbourne, we have arrived in Launceston, TASMANIA for a round the island driving tour. Dean lives in the outer suburbs and has a wonderful view of the Dandenong ranges as pictured below.

Today was so windy and hot, it was nice to be mostly in air conditioner areas. Had a first today too, our plane aborted the landing just before we touched down as the wind gusts were making our landing very rocky. We accelerated back up, did a circle and had a near perfect landing.

We have rented a little Kia Rio. It's awesome except the steering wheel is on the wrong side and I keep going to the wrong door...lol. John is managing the driving very well except he isn't giving me enough time to get the gps on my phone ready. When we do, we get around great. Once we are out on the higher ways, it will be easy peasy, I am sure.

Below are just some variety of pics...

Dandenong??? Really??? The Aussies have a lot of hard to pronounce places for an English speaking country. Before you leave you might want to suggest to someone to change the name to Fred's Hills or something easier...:)
