It blew a gale last night, bit of damage around the town but it looks like it blew itself out. The van certainly shook all night long.

We had to be up and ready for the Gordon River Cruise. Fantastic ship, great crew and running commentary and we were well looked after.

We saw the Sarah Island Penal Colony and did the journey out to Hells Gates at the mouth of the Gordon River. Great trip.

Once we got back we had to hit the road straight away to make some miles, but first I wanted to go to Ocean Beach Road just outside of Strahan. Like Arthur River the ocean just roars in from the west all the way from Argentina.

The afternoon turned gloomy again and it made Queenstown look very desolate and almost a little spooky. We didn't bother to stop as I wanted to make it to Lake St.Clair

and we still had another 2 hours to go.

The lodge at Lake St. Clair was a warm welcome sight, pity we weren't staying there! The camp site was a bit damp under foot and again fairly empty as we had the shower block to ourselves. We weren't really feeling it as we were in for a cold rainy night. But can't complain as the weather has been pretty good so far.
