Saturday 6th June
We went back to Port Arthur Historical Site and finished off what we didn’t get to do yesterday, the place is so big. Today it was drizzling rain and bitterly cold.
In this way please.Convicts Chains, they are so heavy. Cold and bleak, the trees are even bare. Lovely reflections today of the Penitentiary. Very dark skies. Different angle. These are the size of the cells the convicts had, not very big. The view from inside the Penitentiary. Pretty grand sort of Architecture of the sky lights for that era. This was on top of the Law Courts. Guard Towers. Officers quarters up the back. Guard Towers, The sandstone that these buildings are made of have very beautiful colours. Hospital ruins. Looking down over the area where the two churches and houses are. Looking inside the Guard Tower. Inside one of the Ladies cottages, very small rooms and door ways. Looking over to the Asylum and the Separate prison. Another view of the Hospital ruins up on the left. Other ruins that I cant remember to name. Inside the Separate Prison. A cell. Doors to a small yard. The Asylum.
