Goodbye Victoria, Hello Tassie

Days 128-131
Devenport Ferry Dock to Greens Beach

We had an early arrival in Devenport, Tasmania a few days ago. The ferry wasn’t too bad, but who can really sleep in a half reclined chair with fifty people snoring around you. Thank goodness for earplugs. We rolled our bikes of the cargo deck, called our friends and found the nearest café. Three days later we are feeling like locals after a weekend of food, fun and plenty of sleep in a real bed. Here are some of the highlights from the last few days:

-Sunbathing and kite flying at a beautiful (and deserted) beach
-Hanging on the trapeze while sailing on a catamaran
-Hiking along the beach for a mug of cappuccino
-Happy Hour whenever we felt like it
-Watching Chris dunk chips (fries) in a seafood pastry
-Catching up with news from home
-Getting to know new friends

We’d like to thank our hosts, Louise and Clive, for opening their home to us. We enjoyed their hospitality and company more than anyone could imagine. They have been around the block a few times (including a few trips on bicycles) and were kind enough to share some wonderful stories and many bits of useful information. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

CK and LK
