Arrive fly in from Sydney and arrive at Launceston at midday quick Shuttle bus to Launceston CBD to meet Cathy at the Council Chambers

Cathy Gave me a tour of Kings Bridge Cottage in which I will call home for the best part of August.

The Gorge presented a spectacular show arriving a day after a major

downpour and floods, white swirls and currents, streamed past the cottage really charged up the Gorge and added a

very unexpected visual dimension and amazing sound to my stay, I am glad I arrived with no misconception or solid ideas. A quick walk into town for supplies and out for my first paint from 430 into the dark, also stuck my head in the Millhouse Gallery and caught the end of a great exhibition of Nigel Lazenbys work on the ipad.
