Posting again

I’m pleased to report we’re safely back in the UK, albeit tortured by jet-lag.  I’ll start catching up on the missing posts later today, but I don’t imagine that I’ll be done before the end of the month.

The bad news is that, having looked at Platypus Pandemonium on a decent sized screen (the notebook we had with us in Tassie is rather small) I can see that we’ve over-compressed some of the photos, making them pixelated and distorting the colours (no, wombats aren’t green!)  The blog therefore isn’t doing all Julie’s photos justice, so we’ll need to reload some of them over the next couple of weeks to sort it out.

The good news is that Julie has tracked down a local supplier of Devil’s Corner, a Tassie sparkling wine that we grew to love during our time there.  Guess where we’ll be going on Saturday?  Looks like it could be a very merry Christmas!

Author: Platypus Man

"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!
