Alas! I'm home at last!

I'm so glad that I'm home at last.
I'm so glad that everyone is home at last too.

Dad and mom went to Tassie and left me in a boarding home for 10 days. I was doing okay in the boarding home as the lady who took care of me was really sweet and kind. Besides, I've met lots of new friends and although some were a bit annoyed with my incessant barking during the fireworks, I soon changed their minds when I started playing with them and making them chase me!

I think the humans had a wonderful time without me in Down Under as they brought back many many beautiful pictures.  Dad took more than 1000 pictures but I will only choose a few of them for you as I am NOT in the pictures so I don't think you will be really interested in them.

The lookout at Mt. Wellington

Some figurines in Salamanca Market

The oldest bridge in Tasmania - Richmond's convict-built bridge

Then they went to a wildlife conversation and they saw...


Tawny Frogmouth


Wallaby - mini kangaroos

Just look at how many there are!

And mom even got to FEED them!

the Tasmanian Devil

Russel Falls in Mount Field

Ross Bridge

    They also spotted this in Evandale

The famous beautiful Dove Lake in Cradle Mountaint that he humans took two hours to complete the Dove Lake Circuit walk.

A lovely lavender farm, the Bridestowe Lavender Farm

Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park

Their last stop in Tasmania,
Port Arthur

After Tasmania, they didn't feel like coming home yet but made their move to Melbourne

Some city views here

By the way, if you like to see more pictures, Sister Rosie has made a slide for you. Please bear in mind that it might take lots of your time because there are about two to three hundreds of pictures.

One of those to go places in my bucket list. I have a long list too! You were such a good girl to be away from your family for 10 days. Makes it all the sweeter to come home.....

Now we know why we haven't seen you....welcome back to blogland!

Eva!!! We are soooo happy to have you back! (and your Mom!!!) We have missed you so much!

Mom said to tell you that she would have loved to have visited the lavender farm...I bet it smelled delightful!

Mom loved the bridge and the waterfalls too!

Mom is going to check out the photos from the slide show when she has more time.

Thanks so much for sharing!!! Oh and we are so happy that the woman who took care of you Eva was super nice!

What an awesome trip! Looks absolutely amazing! Sorry you had to stay home Eva but it was nice of you to be good and let your mom and dad go!

Terrorzinhos said...

WoW!!! Beautiful shots!

We are happy that you're back!
It's always great when we return home!

Eva, you're more beautiful than ever! =)

Ellen said...

First of all, I bet the people at the doggie boarding house fell madly in love with you. It's nice to have a vacation, but always so wonderful to be home. Oh my goodness, I loved the pictures. Your daddy takes wonderful photos. Sure wish I could go to visit there. It's so very far away though. Well, I'm sure you are just loving up your family now that they are home. Have a great time and see you soon.

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

Oh made my soooooo homesick. She is an Aussie you know but hasn't been home for 10 years. Tasmania is one of her favorite states and it looks like your Mom and Dad got to see all the very best things. What amazing photo's!!! I am glad you are home safe too....make sure your Mom checks you for fleas....when ever there is a few dogs at a boarding kennel there is always a greater risk for fleas :)

Sam said...

Beautiful pix. Super jealous of your family's vacation as that's one place I'd really love to visit, but am too chicken to 1) leave my dog for that long and 2) to get on the long plane ride to get there!

Glad you're all home and reunited now. Bet mom and dad are tired - give'em lots of snuggles!

zeeFM said...
