Before I do that I just want to write a bit about the WordPress Daily Prompt feature on my home page. Since these prompts started appearing I do them from time to time. This morning I looked at the question and trying to decide whether to respond I noticed a line below in the tiny font that WP now uses as default (annoying). It said ” View all responses” I clicked the link hoping for inspiration or at least an interesting read. I was taken to a page that said this:
No recent posts
“No posts have recently been tagged with dailyprompts-1823 for your language.”
OK, well maybe that is because WP does not include the suggestion that you should tag your post dailyprompts-1823 so how would we know to do that?
I also discovered that there were arrows next to the prompt itself and that there are actually multiple prompts to choose from. I can’t remember if those arrows were there before. Certainly I never looked. I tried to view those posts but was met with the same no response message. Each prompt had a different number but the number is not part of the prompt or the default tag. I suppose we are supposed to be clairvoyant.
Does anyone know the secret of how to find out the Daily Prompt number?
Anyway, I decided that I didn’t want to do today’s prompt so I found another one and I am doing that.
I volunteer at the local tourist information centre in Wynyard once a week. It’s very interesting talking to visitors to our town and I enjoy helping them find out how to get to the places they want to see or suggesting them if they don’t know what there is.
One of the most frequently visited areas in northern Tasmania is Cradle Mountain. It is about two to two and a half hours drive from Sisters Beach. People are always asking about the best route to get there, what time the visitor centre is open and where they can camp there. I can answer those questions because we have maps and brochures and I’ve learned a little from listening to what the council employees who run the centre tell people. But, I have never been there myself. I’d like to go but we have just not got around to it as yet. Most of our explorations since moving to north west Tasmania have been along the coast.
Here is what the Parks & Wildlife website has to say about the park.
Iconic Cradle Mountain is a place of exceptional natural beauty in the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA). From moss-covered ancient rainforests and deep river gorges to snow-covered mountain peaks, wild alpine moorlands and glacial lakes, the park is revered for its diverse and breath-taking landscapes.https://parks.tas.gov.au/explore-our-parks/cradle-mountain
What is there to do at Cradle Mountain on a day trip?
You can see Tasmanian Devils, and other wildlife such as echidnas, platypus and quolls.
See snow in winter
If you are planning a trip to Tasmania Cradle Mountain is about two and a half hours drive from Launceston via Sheffield, the town of murals which is well worth a look. Or if you are coming on the ferry it is about an hour and a half from Devonport.
