Sweet Envy & The Female Factory

This weekend I had a girl date with my friend S.
We both really enjoy the simple things in life like coffee and cake, so we chose to start our Saturday afternoon at Sweet Envy (info here).
Located on Elizabeth Street in North Hobart the outside looks plain and neat but inside is a hidden treasure trove of amazing, colourful, wonderful sweet treats!

Huon Valley Mid Winter Festival

Tasmania otherwise known as the Apple Isle has a rich apple growing heritage and this year it was celebrated like no other with the first of what hopefully will become an annual event, the Huon Valley Mid Winter Festival. 

The festival combined the tradition of wassailing (an act of drinking and singing to the health of the apple trees with the hope they might thrive and produce a bumper apple harvest) and the local food and beverage vendors in a weekend of eating, drinking, singing, dancing and general merriment! 

On the approach it looked like a great big party in a field. Exactly what I was hoping for!

Margate Train

Margate Train
Weekend mornings mean special breakfast to me and special breakfast means pancakes! When in Hobart for me there is non better than at the Margate Train.
For those who don't know Margate Train is Hobart's last passenger train The Tasman Limited and these days it stands just before the small town of Margate about 20 kilometres South of Hobart. It's carriages are re purposed into compact shops, including a book shop, sweet shop, and a deli.  It's cute, fun and has stacks of character.
