New Year's Eve

We'd made a long-standing promise to our friend Pam to watch the Hobart fireworks from the water with her nephew and his wife who are visiting from the US. 

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve dinner on Rusalka in Norfolk Bay.  Quail in herb, champagne, and cream sauce with veggies and beetroot salad.  And dessert!!
