We woke up early and drove into the port where the Spirit of Tasmania we struggled to find where to go with the car but we found it and it took forever and ever to go through customs and whatever. We parked the car and walked up to the top of the boat to look at all the other cars that were coming in. After we looked at them and they had finished loading we went to reception to get swipe cards to enter the upper class bit (Ocean View Recliners). Unfortunately the person whom we booked through mucked up and we were not able to enter that section. Mum & I were very upset. We went to have brekkie on the ship cafe then went to find seats. We found really good seats on the 9th deck and they seemed very close to the sea and we could see the sea but they weren't all that comfy. I played on my Nintendo while Dad did That's Life puzzles and Mum read a book called 'Don't tell Mummy'. We roamed the ship for something to do but we were still extremely bored. The toilets were very funny and we eventually docked at Devonport. We got off and came to the hotel. Mum and I walked while dad went to the car. I found a stone and played with it for a bit and am now taking it with me everywhere I go. We talked to Ray (hotel owner) for a bit and he told us about the hotel and Devonport. He kept having a shit-fit at Mum because she kept saying boat not ship. We went to the supermarket and bought bread, milk, a hot chook and salads for tea. Home, ate and then to bed.
