My humble apologies, Platypus Pandemonium has been offline again due to lack of access to the Internet, which is a salutary reminder that much of Tasmania is pretty remote from life in the 21st century.  I have a number of posts written and ready to publish, so I’ll get on with that over the next two days.  However, for anyone who’s been patiently awaiting the return of the venerable Platypus here’s your reward, a couple of sunset pictures Julie took at Strahan on 21 November.

We both reckon this was just about the best sunset we’ve ever seen. At the time we were relaxing in a waterfront cabin, and as Julie began taking photos of the sunset unfolding we looked around us to see people emerging from other cabins and the restaurant to gaze in wonder at the sight.

Ever since we’ve been here we’ve been waiting for a decent sunset and this was certainly worth waiting for. There are plenty of other photos from that evening so I’ll post one or two more in due course.

"Platypus" is a red herring: I'm English, although my blogging career began in my record of a 2016 road trip to Tasmania. Other blogs followed covering road trips in Newfoundland (2017), the Yellowstone area of the USA (2018) and New Zealand (2019). My current project is "Now I'm 64" , a weekly blog covering UK travel and wildlife, along with bits of history, social commentary and moans about the injustice of aging. I can guarantee a few laughs, and also the occasional rant. Some of it's even quite well written!
