Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Penguin 27 February - 1 March 2008

Dropped off Jimmy to an auto-electrician to get some work done and then popped over to Penguin to see Will, (who we had met when we were here in November). He was planning to sell off many of his antiques, so we spent a day helping him catalogue them at his house. He was delightful and eccentric enough to click with us! We took it easy by the sea at Penguin and loved the warmth the few days gave us. These North Central areas are far more protected than most of Tassie and with the towns all facing due north across the water they would be the pick of it for us. Another perfect weather day with a light cardie and lots of sun keeping us warm. The thermometer was no higher than 18c but we remarked about the heat! It was lovely enough to go to the rail tracks by the beach and pick a few kilos of blackberries. This time we sacrificed them to make 5 jars of jam!
Unfortunately, Heather stumbled in a small pothole yesterday and has a sore foot to limp on. Fortuitously all major walks have been done so limited walking for a week,

BOOKED the boat back to the OTHER ISLAND today (going OS)! We will leave Devonport on Friday night, 7th March! Hopefully the sea will be calm! Wish us smooth sailing! The trip will have been for a full 4 months! Could easily stay another month but we miss you all!
