Time for a tram ride.Had to wait for it to go up then down the line.The tram now has to supply it's own power.

Sunday and a sleep in.Thought it about time I went looking for a scallop pie.Off first to the Bizy Bee bakery at Invermay.One of the few open on Sunday.No scallop pies left.So a couple of pics from the area.One of the pubs and the Me Wah restaurant.

And next to the UTAS stadium a memorial to workers dying on the job.

The tram sheds and on the other side UTAS.

Unfortunately, like in Hobart, UTAS is on the move and is going to move in from Newnham and build itself over the Inveresk car-park (the site of the old round-house, turntable - look at the air view) and I think make the Tram museum move. All part of the former Vice Chancellor's Edifice Complex (google Peter Rathgen and see what you find :mad: ); much more fun to spend taxpayer's hard-earned building entirely new campuses in the city rather than the hum-drum of maintaining the existing campuses in the suburbs. Grrr.

Monday I was having dinner at the Grain restaurant at the Silo hotel.just over the river from the Seaport.After the Sunday walk and because the hospital has blocked access to the stairwell so reducing my exercise I decided to walk there.And what a difference a day makes.Left a little earlier so still light at the start of the walk.

First the stroll down to the Tamar beside Royal Park.

And the oldest yacht club in the Southern hemisphere.Though obviously not the oldest club building.

And on the Tamar at the yacht basin the first regatta in Australia was held in 1837.

Not a cloud in the sky so a lot more colour.
