Sundowner Van Park, Melbourne-Devonport

Up early, thank goodness the rain has stopped, by 8.30 am the canvas was dry enough to fold up. 14 deg again cold. Headed to the van park where we are staying before sailing to Tasmania tomorrow. Had a good run. No photos here so onto Jan 22nd sailing to Tasmania. Here’s a few images. Got off at Devonport and headed to Forth for the night. Was late 8.40 pm as the sailing was late leaving Melbourne.

 This is not the ship we’er going on.  All lined up waiting.

Yeah, we are loading.


Days 13, 14 & 15

13th Friday & 14th Saturday

Had some bits to do on the friday. Saturday we packed up and headed to Melbourne to stay at the van park for one night before catching the Ferry for Tasmania. No photo’s.

15th Sunday
Up and away early as had to be at the boat for 6.30 am. Had a good run and was loaded pretty quickly. Pulled out of port at 8.50 am. Did a walk around the boat and sorted out our room, dumped our stuff and went down for a cuppa. Took photos, bought our National Parks tickets and had a sleep in the afternoon. Day went quiet quickly, takes 9 hours and 25 min to cross over, couldn’t get over how huge Port Phillip bay is. First Off the boat and onto the van park in Devonport, well it was awful actually, very basic but not nice. Oh well it was a roof over our heads and saved us driving on dark to Launceston which is 100 km away in the dark.
