Hobart to Derwent bridge

We got to Derwent bridge after lunch we stayed up at Lake St Claire, it is right on the lake it is in the national park so it is very basic.
They have signs up about the resident tiger snakes, so there is no walking into the bush we stuck to the paths.
There are also echidnas just wondering around feeding on ants, they didn’t care who was there, you could even pat them, they are so cute the kids loved them. They went fishing Ella was so excited they let her go, as soon as she through the line in she was confuse that there wasn’t a fish on there straight way. It didn’t last long she was bored with it every fast. (there were no fish that night).
The next day we drove back to Derwent bridge to THE WALL it’s a gallery of wood carvings & this wall all carved to tell a story one side was on the logging the other on the hydro seam , there were jackets, gloves, animals all carved from timber & they all looked so real & soft. Even Alyssa & Mason were impressed ,you weren’t allowed cameras so I have no pics, it was hard for me as I take photos of anything & everything.
