Welcome to Day 17 of the Blogging A-Z April Challenge.
Today, we’re driving from Hobart to Tazmazia, which is located in Promised Land, a town located on Lake Barrington (Tasmania), Promised Land is 200km from Hobart, and about 80 km south of Launceston. The postcode is 7306.
As you know, we’ve been doing a crazy amount of driving around Tasmania. However, we’ve been rushing so much, that I’ve barely had time to share scenery along the way.
So, before we head off to Tasmazia today, we’re having a horse stop beside the road and taking a look at Mt Roland.
Horses are in my husband’s blood. Both sets of great Grandparents bred horses and his Great Great Uncle, Daniel Griffin was a journalist who not only wrote a lot about horse-racing, he knew the horses and their pedigrees inside out. Another Great Great Uncle, James Newton was very involved in horse racing and cousins upon cousins were involved pacing, breeding, racing…you name it.
That said, it’s can be easy to forget that not so long ago, horses were commonplace before advent of the car. It wasn’t just his family.
Anyway, we had to stop when we spotted these horses beside the road. They were so lovely and friendly.
On that note, we’d better get back in the car and head up the hill to Tazmazia and the Promised Land.
