Avagoodweekend - A bit of Sunworship

Lads of the Blue Emporium celebrating the sun and Thank God it's Friday with a beer and some music on the street

We and about ten thousand other people head to Mount Wellington for a bit of Mountain Worship on this fine Saturday

Trip to the Trig Point looks like a Haj
Great Views though
I was hoping the wildflowers might be out but there's still a bit of snow on the mountain
An endless chain of mountains to the North East
Looking South East
We have ourselves a little picnic at the Old Springs Hotel Site which soon attracts some of Tasmania's endemic crows. The wild daffodils are out. The sun seems to have slipped behind the mountain, though it's still light enough to see. This area has always seemed just a little haunted to me. Benign ghosts of course.The Hotel,  which was where Hobart's idle rich went to escape the summer heat, burnt down in the 1967 bushfires.  For some reason, I always imagine ladies in long dresses dancing on this green, especially on moonlit nights. The full moon is already rising.

The first crow
Two more- I am not sure how many crows constitute a murder of crows but I am most definitely reminded of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds"
