The sun continues to shine, a coolish breeze, but perfect walking weather. Today we head further afield. I’ve seen a place called Rosny Park on the Google map and a look-out over the Tasman Bridge so rugging up the dogs in their cute jackets and taking our umbrellas and rain jackets, just in case, (I was a girl guide) we head out….
Would you like to join us….
We walk past cute cottages and picket fences (I think the fence should be painted white. What do you think?)
Kangaroo Point Marina, Bellerive village along the boardwalk. Mt Wellington has a menacing cloud cover.
The silver birch are beautiful in their autumn leaves
A walkway bridge swoops up and over the highway to the Eastlands shopping centre. We will explore that another day…
This is where we are going
Very handy to find a map pointing the way, especially showing the toilets…
Nearly to the top of the lookout. (photo by Jack) Do you like the dog’s trendy jackets?

Tasman Bridge over the River Derwent to Hobart CBD from the top of the look-out
Then we had to walk back down again. We sat here and had a hot pie and chips before heading back home(photo and caption by Jack)
Bellerive beach (our beach!) A short rest before the final stretch (photo by Jack)
The spotlights on the left are over the Blundstone Arena.
The last lap, the walk/bike way along the beach
We walked for approximately 4 hours and covered about 10-12 kilometres. At Bellerive Village we over-took swarms of footy fans, a tide of blue and white on their way to Blundstone Arena for a historic AFL match. It was to be the last one for over a year as the Arena is to be closed and renovated to the cost of $20 million. They were all in a cheerful and friendly mood, lots of comments about our cute dogs.
Taking dogs for walks is a great way to meet and greet people.
We all slept very well that night.
