Final Days of Our Trip

 We absolutely loved Tasmania and our only complaint was the patchy internet connection, even in the towns, despite having  Telstra as our internet provider. The weather was just perfect for our 3 days at Port Arthur and although we had a few days of showers it didn't spoil our trip at all. We finished with 2 days of camping overlooking a pristine beach with free camping, no other campers and phone and television coverage. On our drive back to catch the boat at Devonport we called into the little town of Sheffield, which is known as the town of murals. It has become a tourist attraction and we saw lots of other tourists walking around to see the lovely murals and it must bring much needed money into the town so it's a very clever idea to attract tourists there.
 After an early arrival back to Melbourne on the boat  this morning we have been very busy unpacking, washing clothes etc and tomorrow we have a family wedding and then night shift again for me so life is back to being busy. I did manage to complete two crocheted blankets while we were away so they will be donated to the Melbourne Homeless Connect Day.
 We loved Tasmania and will definitely be returning for another visit in the future. Sorry to be absent from the blog for a few weeks but now that I'm back I'll be posting more about events here.
Thanks for stopping by again.
Hugs, Jan Mac

Thanks for the photos. Tonight I am actually reading a historical fiction work based during the time of the convicts and including a trip by the
governor to Port Arthur so I really appreciate the pictures as it helps bring the story to life. Glad you had an enjoyable time. Cherrie
