          On the road again at 8.50am. Stopped at Dunalley that had a swing bridge. On our way we stopped at the Tessellated Pavement looks like bricks or bread pans along the shore line. Such beautiful clear blue sea. Spectacular area for views. Officers quarters & dog line was a bit of convict history. Dogs were chained & not fed along Eaglehawk neck to stop convicts trying to escape. This place had a dog statue. ...

          We explore a bit of the Tasman Peninsula in search of firewood for our next remote campsite at Mill Creek campground in Fortescue Bay. We have booked a lovely ocean front site for 2 nights. The wildlife is again plentiful and we can add a seal and dolphins to our sightings. Some locals give us a freshly caught squid down at the dock. They kindly even clean it for us after we mention that we are prairie folk from Canada.

          The two of us were well fortified when we continued our own walking tour of the grounds. By now the weather was totally inclement. Rain and squalling winds. Somehow the eerie place became even more special.

          Lucky for us it was also school holidays as many of the ...

          ... to behaviour and performance. Still, newly industrial England could be such a dreadful place that many actually found life better here! After serving their time, often for petty crimes, many convicts acquired skills that were a distinct advantage if and when they gained their freedom. Many Australians are descendants of these people whose circumstances had been so unfortunate. We dock in Sydney this morning and fly to Auckland this ...

          ... the penal settlement finally closed. Many of the buildings were auctioned off or destroyed. Those that remain have been restored and make for an interesting visit. I was attracted to this site after reading Robert Hughes book "The Fatal Shore". The history that abounds in this place is a shocking reminder of a time when man and boys were most harshly treated for what we would consider petty crimes today.
          Incidentally, there were no female prisoners here, so ...
