Since My Last Post……

After rapid instruction we left Kathleen and Paul Wise on a mooring at Kettering and took off to the Port Fairy Folk Festival . This entailed flying back to Melbourne , seeing the family, having a blast at Port Fairy and staying in lux at a gorgeous beach house ( with 14 others, we got bunk beds) then flying back.Just enough time to open bills and pay them. Paul and Kathleen had taken Birubi for an adventure with Dalliance , to Quarantine Bay , but unlike us, bad weather forced them to scuttle plans to sail to Partridge Is. The threat  of big winds, once fog had subsided , convinced them to go back to the mooring so they spent a beautiful day exploring Kettering instead of Bruny. 

On return, and, with beautiful weather forecast, we puttered off down the channel to the Huon Estuary the up the Huon with the tide to Franklin. Caitlin, our daughter, with us this week, bypassed the Wooden Boat School and found Frankies Cidery where she and Bryan enjoyed both cider and a Devonshire tea. Paul and Kathleen caught up with an old friend and we all enjoyed pizza ( scallops for me ) at the lovely fishe & chip place. We’re off again today to maybe visit the Tasmanian Whisky Place on Bruny. Weather is not looking promising.
