A final winery and back to Launceston

We made a slight detour at Lilydale to visit Providence, the oldest vineyard in Tasmania. 

The cellar door is an agent for some other small Tasmanian wineries. 

Though you can only taste the Providence range, they do ship freight free by the dozen anywhere in Australia. 

I'm planning to utilise that service in the not too distant future.

We had a minor hiccough on the way to our accommodation for the next two nights as Murphy's Law struck. 

In the directory, the street was located precisely at the junction of two facing pages. 

And in real life, it was around a blind corner with absolutely no indication that it was coming up. 

Still, we were able to loop back to it and establish landmarks that saved us from overshooting the corner for the rest of the stay.

The cottage at Protea Hill has spectacular views across the Tamar Valley. 

After an excursion in search of dinner, we found ourselves on the veranda, enjoying the Providence Riesling from the last stop on the wine trail and watching rain squalls move up the river valley.
