First, let me paint the scene for you..
It was a typical Tasmanian Winter late morning – dreary and overcast, with the leaves just sopping with rain. Just finished an early shift at work and with a hot coffee and food in the front of my mind, and my mum having a day off work, the idea of a spontaneous brunch out became a reality.
A pretty standard outing, yet with an especially great reward.
After pushing through a long week of work a day off couldn’t just be spent with my feet up, eating large quantities of food and watching day television re-runs.
With this weekend just been marking one month since returning back to live in Launceston, Tasmania from Melbourne, I thought a day trip out to my childhood area of Tasmania – the Meander Valley – for an afternoon of Indie Folk music and (had to get it in my day off somehow) large quantities of food.
The ever-breathtaking hour long drive out my Uncle and Aunty’s cafe/the day’s sold-out music venue, Marakoopa Cafe in Mayberry, was met at the end by a fantastic group of 30+ Sunday music enthusiasts not deterred by a 13-degree day merely a week after the state (and especially the area of Meander Valley) suffered some of it’s worst floods and rainfalls in history.
