Marina at Kettering, Tasmania, July 2007

Good seascape
idleye: Thanks vintage
I've been enjoying your voyages with zed & aussie but as I said earlier have had too little time to properly drop in to add my two penneth worth.
This was a strange spot - the Kettering Hotel - I made the mistake of asking for a coffee instead of a beer (it was before lunch) but the "coffee"(?) was undrinkable. Anywhere else in Tassie the food, beverages, service were fantastic.

It's nice to see the sculpture in the foreground, it adds perspective
idleye: Hi Ellie, thanks for dropping in. The shot was one of those laid on a plate - a bit over pretty - but all the elements were there (except a drinkable coffee!) The Kettering Hotel is going thru hard times and about 10-15 years ago a new owner engaged a swiss (I think) scupltor to do something with all the big very old and decrepit macrocarpa trees around the hotel - so the sculptor carved the tree's trunks and boles (the lumpy growths on tree trunks) into characters from Alice in Wonderland - it is sort of 'wonderful' becauser there are just so many carvings. I have some other photos of these but they aren't particularly that good but I will try to post a couple when I have some more time. He did the mermaid and also a very cheeky take on Michelangelo's David as a surfer dude.
