Apparently pronounced Launc-ces-ton?!?

At Launceston we expanded our culinary repertoire (I think 9 nationalities altogether!) with a good Mexican Meal, in honour of Lulu’s concurrent holiday, and followed with an Ice cream and brownie:-)

Tasmania Devils sculptures in the main shopping area, not the most endearing of emblems!

The next day we drove up Cradle Mountain, about two hours. The foothills were curiously reminiscent of Switzerland, dairy farms with cows in the fields, forests behind and mountain ranges in the distance. t the top initially it was bitterly cold with a strong wind, but after midday the wind largely abated, the sun came out partially and the weather improved considerably on the 3 hr walk around the glacial lake below the mountain peak.
