Today was Launceston Cup Day and a half day public holiday. I spent part of the morning at a Local History Talk at the wonderful Launceston Museum, G spent the time doing paper-work and then we went to The Basin Cafe which overlooks The Gorge, Launceston's treasure. We are so lucky having this in the centre of town and only a few minutes from home. It was a warm day, school out so many families took advantage, dodged the kangaroo and peacock poo on the lawns and went swimming. It all felt a bit cold for me even in the pool, so imagine what the Basin Pool was like. Only a few hardy souls braved that - quickly!
