AHHH.... THE PIG!

GUESS I CAN'T KEEP YOU WAITING ANY LONGER. THE HIGHLIGHT OF TODAY WAS MEETING THE PIGS AT THE PUB IN THE PADDOCK.
THESE PIGS ARE SPECIAL PIGS. YOU SEE THEY ALL LIKE A BEER!

IT STARTED WITH THE FAMOUS BEER DRINKING PIG CALLED PRISCILLA WHO IS NO LONGER WITH US.... mmmm.
BUT WE WERE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED TO LEARN THAT THE OTHER PIGS LOVE A BEER TOO :)

SO THIS WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP. OF COURSE THE BEERS ARE MAJORLY WATER.... ;) BUT THE NOVELITY CERTAINLY MAKES FOR FUN PHOTOS AND A GREAT STORY. NOT TO MENTION THOSE ALL TOO CUTE PIGS ;) NEVER KNEW A PIG COULD BE SO CUTE.

AND OF COURSE THE PUB WAS PRETTY GOOD TOO, DECORATED WITH LOTS OF PIG MEMORIBILLIA AMONGST OTHER STUFF AND ALSO HAD A ROARING FIRE. I LOVED THIS PLACE!!

HOLY COW CAFE

ACTUALLY THE PUB IN THE PADDOCK WAS THE LAST THING WE DID IN PYENGANA. THIS PLACE HAS A FEW TOURISTY THINGS TO SEE.
OUR FIRST VISIT WAS THE HOLY COW CAFE LOCATED A PYENGANA DAIRY CO. JUST IN TIME FOR SOME CHEESE TASTINGS AND A WINE :)

I LOVED THE ROLLING GREEN HILLS IN THE BACKGROUND COMPLETE WITH A SOFT LAYER OF MIST. MADE FOR SOME NICE PHOTOS.

ACROSS THE ROAD A COW AND NEWLY BORN CALF WERE JOGGING ACROSS THE FIELD. JOGGING?.... YEP, THAT'S WHAT THEY WERE DOING :)
UNFORTUNATELY I DIDN'T GET A GOOD PHOTO AS I WAS TOO BUSY ENJOYING THE SCENE.

ST COLUMBA WATERFALL

I'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE LOVELY GREEN ROLLING HILLS OF FARM LAND. HOWEVER, THERE IS A POCKET OF RAINFOREST HERE. I WOULD NEVER HAVE THOUGHT THAT TASMANIA WOULD HAVE RAINFOREST. WELDBOROUGH WHERE WE HAD JUST COME FROM IS SITUATED RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RAIN FOREST AND WE HAD JUST DRIVEN DOWN WINDY ROADS TO ARRIVE HERE IN PYENGANA.

SO IT WAS NO SURPRISE TO US THAT PYENGANA HAS A WATERFALL. ST COLUMBA WATERFALL WAS A NICE EASY 15MIN WALK DOWN HILL THROUGH LUSH MOSS COVERED GREENERY. IT MADE FOR SOME NICE PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES.

THE SHOP IN THE BUSH

TIME TO HIT THE ROAD TO ST HELENS ON THE COAST. BUT FIRST OF ALL - A LITTLE SHOPPING.

THE SHOP IN THE BUSH, JUST OUTSIDE OF ST HELENS WAS A NICE LITTLE SURPRISE. WHAT A GREAT NAME! :)
THIS PLACE WAS AN ALADDIN CAVE FULL OF ANTIQUES, JEWELRY, GLASS WARE, AND COLLECTOR BOOKS. I WAS IN MY ELEMENT.

I BOUGHT A TINY CHINA GOLD EDGE DECORATED PLATE WITH PAINTED BIRDS TO ADD TO MY COLLECTION OF APPETIZER PLATES AND BOWLS.

ST HELENS BIG 4

OUT STOP FOR THE NIGHT - ST HELENS BIG 4 CARAVAN PARK. THIS WAS A NICE PLACE. WE HAD OUR OWN ENSUITE WHICH WAS A BONUS. THE BUSHLAND SURROUNDINGS MADE FOR A NICE SETTING. BUT IT WAS COLD AND WE WERE LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING OUR LITTLE FAN HEATER GOING AND ENJOYING A COMFORTABLE SLEEP.

Love the beer-guzzling pig!!!

by Kathrin_E

Love the pigs and the waterfall!

by ToonSarah

This looks glorious. Love the farms. BTW, I think all pigs like beer. It's a shame to waste good beer but not-so-good beer would be fine. Something about casting pearls before swine . . . ;)

by Beausoleil

We loved that area but clearly needed more time. Great pics and love the stories about the places to visit.
