Sandy Bay

The last 3 nights in Hobart have been spent at the delightful Grosvenor Court in Sandy Bay, booked via Grosvenor Court is set back a couple of blocks from the busy Sandy Bay Road in lovely leafy surrounds.
The apartment is well fitted out, very comfortable and even comes with free wi-fi, outstanding value compared to some of the holiday apartments the pair have stayed at. Nothing is too much trouble for the management team, they've gone out of their way to make the duo welcome.
Location is also excellent, shopping, pubs, restaurants, even Salamanca Place are within walking distance.

Cornelian Bay Boathouse

A very nice dinner was had with Peter & Jan at their favourite restaurant, the Boathouse in Cornelian Bay, Hobart. This was the nicest restaurant MB & MDR have visited for quite a long time, great food, service and location combined with Peter & Jan's company made it a wonderful night out. Shall definitely be returning when the opportunity presents itself.

Antiques & Lunch in Hobart CBD

MDR & MB are back in Hobart after some serious pampering at Aunty Monica's 7 star resort in Melbourne.  Back to "work" today, organising insurance, property inspection, title searches and general research for the proposed purchase at Lachlan. 
Found a wonderful lunch spot in Elizabeth St Hobart today, The Antiques Market & Cafe, a gorgeous shop packed to the gunnels with lovely old stuff.  The cafe was advertising home made lamb, mushroom and rosemary pies which MB couldn't resist. The pies are very generously sized and made with real meat, very chunky and nicely spiced.  The side salad was super fresh with locally grown and very ripe tomatoes. 
While waiting for lunch one can browse through the store, MB can't think of a better way to have lunch!
