Enjoying Tasmania's slower pace

We have been here 1 week today and are settled into 'go slow pace of life'!  Monday we drove 59 kms down to Launceston, had breakfast at our favourite cafe Le Cafe - a beautiful French cafe overlooking a lovely tree lined park run by our good friend.  She is a very talented artist and displays her paintings in the cafe.  Next quick shopping then home via Georgetown - the oldest town in Australia.  In the car my breathing was a bit strained however by mid afternoon I had come good and once back here we went for a walk on the beach - a deserted beach as we were the only 2 persons on the beach.

The last few nights I have had back shoulder blade bone pain coming down my arm when lying down in bed - quite painful and not sure where it is coming from, however other than that I am fine!

Yesterday we had a long walk along the beach and again we were the only persons on the beach.  Late afternoon resting upstairs on the bed reading and looking out to sea watching the waves, the lighthouse flashing and the sun set.  All very peaceful, relaxing and good for the soul.

Today we drove 19 kms to Beauty Point (home of Platypus and Sea horse World) where we caught up with friends, had a coffee/green tea and home for another walk along the beach.

Friday we are house-sitting for the weekend in Launceston so will make the most of walking up Cataract Gorge, going to Evandale Market on Sunday and shopping of course!

My heart is with those brave warriors going through treatment and for those who are getting/have results and being told their life is on hold with further treatments for the moment.
