The abandoned swimming center in downtown Hobart. Yesterday doors locked and padlocked, today ripped open. swimmingpoolstories.blogspot.com/2010/09/hobarts-abandone…

Strangely we first saw this building yesterday. Never quite been to that part of the city before, but we saw a house yesterday right opposite. However yesterday the gates were closed and padlocked. Today wide open. This image is actually shot through a broken window in the door.

Now, why were we out walking in a part of Hobart we don’t usually walk? Well, we found a house we like, actually really very much like, and decided to see how walkable it would be to our jobs in the city. It turns out there are 2 different ways to do the walk, one beautiful through bush, parks and along a rivulet (approx 35 mins), the other down the street (approx 30 mins). Is this too far or long ? Thats a big question. Where we are now is about 20 minutes, so its not all that much further. On the walk up the road home, we pass a few corner stores, a gourmet supermarket, a bottle’o, a hospital, 2 different doctors, and quite a few cafe’s. Its an easy walk, but is 30/35 mins too much?

Argh, its complex, its confusing, and so hard to know what to do…..
