More pictures from Tasmania

THREE things! Those are the only things in his 62 years that he has discovered he does not like. So my mom was at IKEA this weekend and bought this:
Abba Swedish Herring in Garlic Sauce! How disgustingly awesome is this? I think she bought it just because the brand name is Abba. You'll recall that a certain 1970s Swedish supergroup totally rules. My mom thinks so too. My dad loves this stuff.
Last week I posted pictures from Tasmania and I provided a map for your edification. Here it is again!
See how I care about you? We left off on the west coast of the island, near the town of Strahan and MacQuarrie Harbour. We were cruising around on a big boat and going to visit Sarah Island, the oldest convict settlement in Tasmania. It's a neat little place. The picture below is the old penitentiary.
We toured the harbour and the Gordon River that feeds it, and eventually went out the narrow neck at the top of the harbour, which is known as Hell's Gate. This is the lighthouse on the one side of the gate.
That evening, while we were strolling on the beach, we came upon a beached whale. It was quite the tourist attraction. Later on they got him back out into the water, so that he could be hunted down and killed with impunity!
This final picture is of my traveling companions walking along the beach. I just like the setting and the composition, if I may be so pretentious.
So that's picture day for this week. I hope to have more time this week to surf the Internet, so links will probably be back next Sunday. I know you can't stand the withdrawal!
