Day 19
We are home & we are done!
Yesterday we drove down from the mountains & arrived back in Hobart at night. We stayed in a cheap hotel motel but it was in a fantastic location, high up on a hill, overlooking the river. When we opened the curtains, the view of the moon shining on the water was incredible.
Today we were up at 5 to catch our planes home. They both managed the journey like professionals!
The kids are very happy to be home & have fallen into the deep sleep you only have when you are in your own bed.
This photo does the view no credit, but gives you an idea.



Oh Mona!

Day 12
Today we found the best sensory room I have yet to experience. L loved it! We all did.
It was at MONA the museum of old & new art.
We called it the ‘pink & blue room’. Here’s why:



We had so much fun there. We saw things we’d never seen, we were amazed, delighted and at times confused.
I love seeing kids experiencing art. They are so fresh & honest in their response. I felt like a kid too as we went from room to room seeing the unexpected & the unbelievable.
For an autistic kid there were many wonderful experiences – everything from jumping on a sky high trampoline overlooking the Derwent River to watching jungle book surrounded by some of the original character drawings to a large dark room full of old lounge chairs & old tv’s (screen heaven) to the fabulous pink & blue room.
Oh Mona!
