Just arrived in fact - and had to put something up already! Came across to the island last night from Victoria on the Spirit of Tasmania II and after a pleasant dinner, and an early and relatively calm and peaceful night, we docked at 6.00 am in Devonport and finally got away at 7.45. Stopped at the Raspberry Farm at Elizabeth Town for breakfast (YUMMM - can highly recommed this place) and arrived at home at 11.30. Got greeted by a clap of thunder and a downpour! Now, however, the sun is shining. John has a load of washing in already and has gone to the shops for provisions and I have packed all the stuff away and gone through the mail. Apart from the potplant inthe kitchen (which looks a little ill) everything looks fine and the cleaning lady had been this morning - added bonus! Will try to get some photo's up from our visit to Floriade and then to the Tulip Festival in the Dandenongs, just near the Silvan Dam outside Melbourne on Wednesday - just beautiful!
