Targa Tasmania - Bee style

Drove up to Strahan yesterday. My goodness. I've never seen roads that twisted, turned up and down all in the same stretch of road with 100 metre drop offs just inches from the door.
I think Ron found the part into Queenstown especially challenging. His comment was along the lines of "thank goodness" once we got into the town. There was amazingly steep drop offs just near the passenger door and he was looking down into this with just a little bit of hesitation.
Frankly I couldn't tell cos I had my eyes glued to the road trying to avoid oncoming trucks, buses and other obstacles. So really I couldn't tell.
Booked into Franklin Manor which is beautiful. Rooms are incredibly comfortable, spacious and very old wordy. The food at the restaurant was to die for!
Didn't do much more for the rest of the day.
Today we went into the town and booked a helicopter tour and river cruise for tomorrow. So that's all taken care of now. This afternoon we go on a train tour into the wilderness so am really looking forward to that.
More piccies about to be loaded up onto the blog once I've got this posted.
Bee and Ron
