Now we know what it is like to sleep on the side of a hill. Despite trying to level the motor home, we could not level out the site given to us. There was evidence of others trying before us but obviously the park rangers care little about the value of flat campsites, they are… Continue reading Ten Days Tasting Tasmania: Windy and windy
To our relief there was no sound of rain on the roof so we cautiously looked out of the window when we awoke to a cloudy but clearing day. Phew! The cruise booked for the day would go ahead.

The kids were the first up and we are always… Continue reading Ten Days Tasting Tasmania: Colour my world
