Just after midnight I woke in that half-awake, half-sleep state with a feeling of the bed moving. When I came to and remembered my surroundings I realised we must have been out on the deep seas of Bass Strait as the room was moving up and down. We had a decent sleep in the end but the 5:45 am wake up call from the captain was a shock to the system.

We’re very conscious that we only have 21 days to explore this fabulous state and as a consequence are happy to rush around like maniacs trying to make the most of it. So far so good! We’re on the move today but before we set the wheels in motion I wander into Penguin with Jane. Just as we were leaving the boys asked us to get them some bait if we pass a fishing shop and of course we said we would.
