Wooden Boat Festival Time Again

It is always a joy to me to come out and enjoy the wooden boats. There is something in my heart that says "I'd love to have one" but then my brain kicks in saying "Too much like hard work to maintain". So here are my selection of pictures for the lovers of the wooden boat and a special tribute to the dedicated people who tend, care and love them enough to make sure they are still around for us to admire. Thanks! :-)
First came the Parade of Sail

































More next time....

  1. Wonderful photos of these magnificent vessels, Deb! Is this festival in March then? Just wondering as next year I will be in Hobart the second weekend of March for a bloggers retreat and it would be great to see this.

    1. Maria, It was in February and it is only held every 2 years so the next one will be 2017. Its a wonderful festival that just gets better and better each time. Ah a blogger's retreat, now that sounds marvelous.

    2. Feb 2017...gives plenty of time to work on my husband to convince him that a Tassie holiday then would be perfect. Actually he was a sea cadet at high school, so he might be keen to go :-)
