On the last night our family was here we all had dinner at Grain at the Silos. We all enjoyed it. I was the only one who had an entree. a very nice kingfish cerviche.

New Years Day and lunch at one of the very few restaurants open. Hogs breath. I was on call and usually get no calls after a morning round. but today got 7 calls over lunch. None after we left. Had to sit next to this sign.

Mrsdrron had the appetiser serve of ribs. Was more than enough and they were very nice.

Sunday 2/1 and Mrsdrron's last night here. A lot of restaurants still closed but the Brisbane Street Bistro was open so we booked a.1830 dinner. Walked in to an empty restaurant. no others arrived after us. This is an extreme example of what is happening here now. a lot of people are scared to go out.
A pity as it was an excellent meal. We shared an entree of pork terrine,chicken liver pate, pickles and Sourdough crackers. Excellent.

Mrsdrron had the pork belly with shallots,cucumber and hoi sin sauce in a pancake. This was superb.

Whilst I had a very good King Island sirloin steak cooked perfectly.

Another definite recommendation.

Always a pretty good scallop pie here.

Kmart was on fire. Cars were still in the car park. People being led into the car park 1 at a time to retrieve their cars.
Just down the road Jacqui Lambie's office.

A drive out past the hospital in Burnie and a drive by a few of the places I had stayed in. A nice part of Tasmania are the ordinary gardens. Agapanthus and Hydrangeas at peak now.

On the way back to Launceston I detoured to the piece of Tassie bushland i have walked the most.

The native cherries still had some ripe fruit.

But this is what I had hoped to see. Sun orchids.

The area does not have as many orchids now as when I first started to visit 14 years ago. Sometimes the tubers are eaten by the wildlife but I suspect it is 2 legged idiots that cause problems such as this.
