Say hello to The BIG Penguin at Penguin, Tasmania!

Well much of the excitement of the day was our stop at the small town of Penguin. The children were very eager to be able to get out of the car and have their picture taken with the BIG penguin situated in the centre of town down by the beach. This statue is a real tourist attraction, with almost all people passing through stopping to have their photo taken with it.

So we had to take this opportunity to share with you our happy snaps of us and the Big Penguin while we can!

The Beautiful Murals at Sheffield, Tasmania.

Well today we were on our way from Hobart to Burnie. SZG needed to be in Burnie for tomorrow as he has the next few days at Burnie for training. The children and I decided that we would go along with him and while he was working we would have a look around Burnie and surrounding places as the children have never been around to Burnie before.

Along the way we stopped at the small town of Sheffield. it is quite well known for the wonderful murals that adorn the buildings around the town. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side, but we braved the drizzle and rain to take a walk around the town and have a look at quite a variety of the different murals on offer.

The children had a good time, which was the main aim of the day!

Here are some pictures of a few of the murals we seen.
