April 6th – Hobart last morning – fly back to Brisbane

Early start for me and Nita, we were moslty packed by 6am, and 6:30 we were out for the morning photo session. We have been doing this at multiple holidays destinations – where we get up super early and get to top vantage points for pics when there are limited to no crowds. Had done this already in London & Paris (twice), and with weather in our favour was not going to miss Hobart – had to drag Nita out of bed but it was all worth it.

Out on the streets at 6:30, the weather was clear and cold. Nice crisp morning breeze – air in Hobart is so fresh!
Headed to the water front area and setup my tripod. My sony a6000 is such a great workhorse – this has been my camera for the last 8 years and it works just as well today as when new. The best feature for me is the wifi operation, so love that, allows me to take so many great self shots. Most of these shots are via this mode.

Now to capture some pics…..

Hobart waterfront with Mt Wellington in the background

While setting up my tripod and camera, met Doc he was out for his regular jog! He is one committed man on staying healthy…. I need to do that! but for now for some self portraits

Photos done and we were back at the hotel room by 7:15am, to finish off packing.

We met Vik and Meeta at the lobby at 7:40am and loaded all our luggage in the car.
Next stop, walk to Daci Daci bakery for an early morning breakkie. Doc and Tina were not too keen on breakkie.
Final day walking in Hobart, just taking it all in.
Arrived at Daci Daci, this time we were seated inside.

Ordered our standard latte’s, Chicken Mushroom pastry, Croque Monsier & Almond crossiant to share.
Good relaxing time to replay our last few days of fun here.

Breakfast @ Daci Daci

Around 8:40, we left Daci Daci, a leisurely stroll back to the hotel. Took the waterfront route – last time to enjoy this scenery (for this trip).
Doc and Tina were already in the lobby, time to move their luggage into the car, quick re-checks and then we were off the to Airport.
Morning traffic was heavy, we had not experienced this in the last few days but it was still moving.

Got to the airport with loads of time, so had to be our flight got delayed by a further 20 mins.
Car dropped off, check in done now it was waiting in the lobby. Time for more coffees and washroom breaks.

On the plane, and home bound…good bye Hobart……till next time

We arrived in Brisbane just after 2, farewelled the gang and then taxi home.
Pooja was so excited to see us when we arrived!! Neha was at university so not meeting her till later in the evening.
For our welcome back the girls had gone early morning to Darvella to pick up some pastries for afternoon tea 🥰. So much love.

This had been a short burst of a great time with friends. Last 5 nights at Hobart had been amazing, with the best food, best drinks and the best company. Am so in love with Hobart, will need to come back here and bring Neha & Pooja with us.

Till the next post ….. ardios 🙂
