One of the purposes for this long cruise was to see Tasmania. We had been to all the other states in Australia before, but we had never stepped foot in Tasmania. We did that this trip.
There were 3 stops on the island state, Burnie, Hobart and Port Arthur. The ship “blew” off Burnie because of high winds. We landed in Hobart and we tendered off Port Arthur. We only stepped foot in Hobart. The rest of the time we were trying to survive our colds. Murphy has a way of working things out—if we had arrived in Tasmania first, we could have experienced all the stops.
In Hobart I saw my first Christmas decorations for this year. It seemed strange because it’s late spring in OZ, so seeing snow covered scenes does not make a lot of sense.
I only walked to the City Center Hobart as I was looking for a pharmacy to buy some cough medicine. I bought the medicine, and went back to the ship. Again Murphy working overtime!
I did take some pictures...so that’s good.
I’m writing this from Sydney a few days later. We are feeling better, so the cough medicine did work.
