Tasmania is cold
Well when I first arrived the weather was warm, and I thought to myself what is everyone talking about Tasmania isn't cold. Then the mornings and evenings began to get cold and sometimes it is still cold in the middle of the day.

What have I Been Doing Lately?

Well I have been looking after kids, we have 7 kids two who when they arrived didn't speak English but they are learning. The ages of the children range from 14 months to 5 and it is fun watching the little ones as they are beginning to talk. We have taken the kids on an excursion to City Park and they had fun playing and watching the

The Gorge
I went with a lot of the students to Cataract Gorge. The area there is really beautiful. There is a pool there and you can also swim in the river, but I didn't go swimming. i did however go for a walk with some of the others and we saw a wallaby.

Tamar Island Wetlands

We had a public holiday in March and on that day i went with a group of students to Tamar Island Wetlands which is a wetlands area that has a board walk that you can walk across to 3 or four Islands, while we were there we saw heaps of birds including black swans and we even saw a couple of snakes.

Ben Lomond
Last Saturday I went with a couple of families to Ben Lomond which is the local mountain. It was cold there. We went for a walk on the mountain and had some gread views of the area. We even saw a couple of Wallabies.

Tasmania is bedevilled by devils, but according to most accounts is no longer betigered by tigers.
