Despite still being in left over debt from living overseas and having a seriously great holiday just before I came home last year, I promised myself that I'd get to Tasmania this year and visit Mona. It just so happened that my friends were going to be on tour (more on them in another post), so boom! Easy holiday. N and I flew in Saturday morning and headed straight to Salamanca Market. To be perfectly honest, I was a bit disappointed in the markets, especially after hearing such great things. I guess I can be a bit of a market snob, but I was expecting a lot more gourmet food and it just didn't deliver for me. I did have the best salmon and prawn pie I've ever eaten in my life though. The stall's signature scallop pies had sold out, so we made do with salmon.

This guy looked like he was from a seaside town in England.

This was my favourite piece. Giant screens with binary code and a constant stream of data flashing up. I snapped this just as a guy was walking past...

Perhaps 10:30 was too early for a whiskey tasting when we were starting a winery tour...

I made friends with all the winery pets. This is Pooley Wines' cat Portia.
