In Issue Twenty Six:
Alone in the Storm + Huon Apples Part Two + Orbit + International Wall of Friendship
Back in Tasmania for the long days and the fine weather. It’s very much a spring season here – the Bedfordia is flowering and the rain comes unexpectedly!
This issue, we travel from mountains to orchard to planetary orbit to downtown Hobart CBD.
We start with Tristan Stuart’s recollections of a whiteout blizzard on Mount Field, and join him in spirit as he navigates through the mountain alone in the storm. And in sunnier and warmer places, we rejoin Beth Hall for the second half of her history of the Huon Valley apple industry. There’s fresh apples in the markets so you should get your Croftons and Pink Ladies!
Selmes Films has compiled an incredible timelapse from the International Space Station – it’s a glorious planet and they’ve got the best possible view. Keep your eyes open for a meteor hitting the Earth’s atmosphere!
And we’ll leave you with a reminder of Tasmania’s international links. Did you know that Hobart has an International Wall of Friendship? Representatives from around the world have donated sections to the wall – it’s worth a look!
All the best!
