Hobart has everything

Yesterday, I started the day with a coffee and a walk along the shores of Sandy Bay, Hobart, Tasmania.

Then I met the Hobart sketching group on the other side of the Derwent River at Kangaroo Bay.

I drew three houses facing the bay.  I didn’t get a chance to apply paint because I had a game of disc golf to play.

Hobart has had a disc golf course for about 30 years and regularly hosts state championships and has hosted international championships.  Disc golf is like traditional golf except you throw a disc that is similar to a frisbee but it is heavier, smaller and has sharper edges. Like golf, you aim to get it in a basket in as few of throws as possible.

The golf course is located in Austins Ferry in the Poimena Reserve, Tasmania and has stunning views.
