my leonard, yummy pinot and how I got the irishman to tassie

we are just back from a four night trip to tasmania. i have wanted to visit tassie for as long as i can remember but have never been successful in getting the irishman down there.  then it came to me .....

we both love leonard cohen ...well, i didn't until last year when the irishman dragged me kicking and screaming to a concert (his sister was visiting from ireland at the time and an hour before the concert i was pleading with her to take my ticket).  i left the concert madly in love with the seventy-something year old leonard and don't know why a hadn't been lovin him for years! i now refer to my leonard as, you guessed it, my leonard. the most magical and spiritual and blissful concert I have been to in my life (and i've been to too many to remember).

anyway, this year he was playing in a massive arena as sydney had realised how fabulous he is, and we didn't want to experience the magic of my leonard in that environment, so i thought - lets see him in little ole tassie where there wont be a huge arena.  genius, yes i know!

so that is how i got the irishman to tassie. here are some photos from the adventure.

 the really really old and magnificent bridge in new norfolk ... i think it may be the oldest in Australia even.

 a wine dog ... pooley wines

had to stop to let an echidna cross the road ....aww

another divine wine dog that autographed my 'wine dogs' book

we had a magnificent time.  visited wineries and tasted far too many divine pinot noirs (is that possible?), experienced the divine mr cohen, walked through forests, drove around valleys and generally had a blissful time. 

the best thing ... the irishman wants to go back!!! Yay to me!!
