ExplorOz - David & Michelle

Bad sleep requires cooked breakfast. I forgot the egg flip so although I cooked an omelette I couldn't get it out of the pan so it became scrambled eggs on toast. Leah was very sad to say goodbye to her friend Bonnie and even cried but we were packing up and moving off the island today.

The ferry can get quite full so we arrived early for the 11.35am departure and although we successfully got on, noticing that half the queue did not.

We had quite a day of driving ahead of us but didn't get through Hobart until 12.30pm. Grocery shopping is a basic requirement when travelling and although time consuming it has to be done and we seemed to use half the day at the shops. Finally, by 4pm we realised we weren't going to make it to Freycinet where we had been aiming, instead, we took UteMad's advice and camped at Nine Mile Beach (Bagot Point) which is directly opposite. The views of The Hazards (Freycinet's main natural feature) at sunset from this location would be awesome if the weather was pleasant enough to allow you time to sit and contemplate. Our weather today was turning foul so we didn't get the opportunity to enjoy this site to its full potential. Not being prepared to get the swags wet again David and I moved our double swag in with Leah and Chardae.

Dinner - red chicken curry with red capsicum, broccolini and rice (forgot to buy coconut cream but used Lite and Creamy evaporated milk that I normally use in pasta dishes and you wouldn't know the difference). Leah ate baked beans again.
