    Noisy and dirty

    ... favourite rug or beadspread (I did not make this up).

    Our time in Raro is almost up and we are coming to the close of the sizeable and hugely enjoyable nostalgia chunk of the trip. Its time to mix things up a bit and bring on some new stuff. - It's time to shiver your timbers, batten down the cabin boy and set sail for New Caledonia (new what?). This may seem an unlikely proposition, but a weeks cut price, off-season cruise round the tropical islands of ...

    ... on the left side' signs there are. Makes you wonder how many people messed that up. En route to Mt. Wellington we winded up a massive, well, mountain, to the very top, a casual 1,200 meters high. The views weren't what we were expecting, seeing the vast city and suburbs below and mountains over 100km away. I made the connection that the layered mountains looked like the old Microsoft desktop photo, it didn't look real. With our running shoes in the back seat, we changed ...

    ... Line Dancing, attending a talk on our next port of call, Sudoku, reading and (of course) cups of tea and eating. It must be pretty rough, as we have been told that the dance show, planned for this evening, has been postponed and replaced with a safer singing show.

    ... is stronger.

    Checking our Wiki Camps app we decided to head down to Gordon for the night. The drive was, as always amazing. The camp was full to the brim and overflowing. Long weekend and there were more Tasmanian's there than tourists. Couldn't have fitted Vincent any which way.

    Passed the lovely village of Cygnet where we will be returning to next weekend for the folk festival and finally ended up at Franklin on the river in a $10 campsite. Very picturesque.
