18 Dec 2015 - Tasmania Day 5: Opium Poppy Farm on our way to Hobart

We checked out of Silver Ridge Retreat early this morning and embarked on a long drive (3+ hrs) towards Hobart.  Along the way, we came upon a huge field of Opium Poppies. Farms in Tasmania produce about 50% of the world's licit poppy straw that is later refined into opiates such as morphine and codeine.
After an hour into the drive, we saw thick clouds forming ahead.
The cloud seems to be engulfing everything along its path.  Reminds me of some movie scenes where sandstorm were approaching (in MI4?).......  :-)
