I’m back, fully charged up on Boags draught, mutton bird and instant coffee. I hope to continue with the Boags draught and go back to a better form of coffee. The mutton bird will remain a treat when visiting Tassie.

A little bit of sightseeing was had and I spent a bit more time in Hobart which is pretty little city. The boy enjoyed getting his feet wet up at Boat Harbour in the North west in the icy waters of Bass Strait.

I’ll get back to more usual topics soon.

    speaking of which, can you make it to this Thursday’s drinks night?

  4. Steve says:

    Thanks for the heads up Jason. I will try to be there. Should be at least able to drop in for a bit.

    Mutton bird is interesting, very strong smelling. You really don’t want to cook it indoors and it helps if you can throw away anything that comes into contact with the fat from it.

    On the other hand it is quite tasty, but a little annoying in that you have to pick around a fair bit of bone.

    Hmm Andrew moved off onto his own site. That’s sort of a disappointment.

    I’ve been slowly trying to work through some of the old posts from the last couple of weeks.

    I had the idea that mutton birds were protected except insofar that aboriginal people could catch them on some beaches. Is that correct?

    No. You can get permits to bag a certain number during a two week season. They are sold in the shops in Nth tasmania during the season, although the ones we had were caught by my brother-in-law.
