On the 30th of March two of my friends and I decided to have a ‘local’ adventure and drive down to the small town of Franklin in the Huon Valley to do an afternoon tour on a small ship that goes up and down the river.
We were on the water for about 2.5 hours and enjoyed a brilliant day out of sunshine, mild breezes and the best food. All of the food and wine is produced in the local Huon Valley. We had locally smoked pork (the meat eaters amongst us), salad, pickled onion and radish type treats as well as the best local cheese and home baked bread one could ask for. The food was served to each of us in, what I can only describe as a small horse trough shaped container. It was very clever. Everything was packaged up and was a great deal of fun to explore. We found too many goodies to eat to remember. We were busy gnawing our way through it all.
Tasmanian wines were sampled as well but as I was driving so my sampling ability was rather limited. The guy up front told us a bit about the boat.
I think the photos will speak for themselves as to how much fun we had. It was a wonderful Saturday Wander.
Until Next Time…..
