Cooler weather today but that didn’t stop some swimmers hitting the water like these ones at Nugrove Beach.
On the beach at Clifton Beach South East of Hobart. It was the place to be today i am sure as the tempreture climbed to 32 degrees C and a swim would have been nice had i not been working. Elsewhere for the second day running the state record high tempretures of over 42 degrees including several places around Bicheno where my other photoblog is centred
By the water at Cremorne, South East of Hobart. While you can’t tell from the picture there was a current of the water going out at a fast walking pace.
I picked this shot because the tractor looked so small in the big field around it.
Today’s picture is of Richmond Bridge. It is the oldest bridge in Australia that is still in use. Built by convict labour between 1823 and 1825 it was to provide a reliable means of crossing the Coal River at Richmond and is still used by vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
It will be interesting to see if the bridge has any water running under it in a few weeks as it crosses the same river as the dam that is now officially empty. There is a weir a couple hundred metres down river that may keep the water level up for a while.
