Tasmania, part III

A Tasmanian Tiger (thylacine). This is a stencil that was spray painted as graffiti on a wall on the side of a building in Hobart. Tasmanian Tigers are extinct. While in Hobart, we went to a museum that had video of the last known Tasmanian Tiger, from 1936. The video was shot at the Hobart Zoo. The thylacine was exposed to severe weather conditions and died. =(

Here is another picture from Salamanca Market, where we were on Saturday.

Near the Salamanca Market: a fountain commemorating the Dutch ships and sailors who sailed around the Tasman Straight years ago.

Here are some purple flowers we saw at the park on Saturday in Battery Point.

A Tasmanian license plate.

John with the hot chocolates we had with breakfast Saturday morning. We got a good deal: french toast and hot chocolate for AUS$9 per person.

Originally, though, they gave us mochas by accident.

Which John was perfectly happy with, before we discovered they were mochas.

The two of you must have been cold based on the pics we have seen. I'm glad the two of you enjoyed the trip.

Yes, it was cold! It really felt like winter, especially seeing the snow. It was a lot colder than Sydney has been.
