This is just a little Hello. It's not quite spring yet, but the daffodils are out and so is the first spring blossom so I've ventured out of the cave. There isn't much to see yet, but the scent of spring is everywhere.
Remembering about waiting too long and putting things off, I called in on a lady I had asked years ago about some of the quaint street names around here - Salvator Place, Poets Road... etc. because she had written a little book about West Hobart.
Though in her nineties now, she was still going strong and has since published another book, her fifth so far - a historical novel about early Tasmania. I meant to ask her about some of the shops and old cottages but we were so busy talking about other things, I forgot all about it.

|This little cottage dates from 1835. That's old by Australian standards!|

|Sorry, no idea!|
|...or about this quaint little shop|
|This used to be the general store. Now it's a very upmarket salon|

They will all give you a hear attack because they are so steep
