Yesterday was a very interesting day we drove from St Helen's to Scottsdale, which along the way we went to a cemetery from there, we went to Bridport. We had lunch at the pier in the motorhome as it was raining. We went on to George Town in the rain and there we went over the Batman Bridge. We went down the tamar river to the city, Launceston.
