Days 16 & 17

16th Monday
Had a lovely drive down thru the Midland h’way and onto Launceston. got here and Sean said we could put the camper into the carport, so very lucky. We will do day trips for awhile from here. Spent the rest of the day catching up with Sean and Katie. Sean took us for a quick venture around town and down to his work where we caught up with Katie as well.
17th Tuesday
We decided to go to Cataract Gorge and to see Ducks Reach, was an old hydro power station, even though the weather has rained and very overcast, had a great day and will do the other end tomorrow. These photo’s were taken with a point and shoot that is waterproof, so not the best images, as it was raining.
