Day 126 - Sunday 15 September 2013

We were woken at 5:45 am and advised that disembarking would start at 6:30 am. Being on the main truck deck we were off the ferry quite quickly and were lined up for quarantine inspection at 6:45 am. The weather in Devonport was not great, with a little light drizzle and cloudy skies. After a quick look in the refrigerator by the quarantine inspector, we were soon on our way. We stopped for fuel at Perth, then stopped again for breakfast at Zeps in Campbelltown - we both had an omelette and a cup of coffee.

We eventually arrived home at about 11:00 am after calling in at the Montrose Bay dump point to empty the holding tanks and give them a good flush out using our new macerator pump that allows you to flush the tanks with fresh water while pumping them out. As we drove south from Devonport the weather gradually improved and by the time we got home the sun was shining. Once we got home it took 2.5 hours to unload all gear from the caravan - food from the fridge/freezer, clothing, and all the items that we had accumulated over 4 months on the road. After emptying the van we drove down to the Barilla Bay Caravan Park to put the caravan back into storage until the next trip.

Our next port of call was to call in to see Michelle and Craig, as well as our grandchildren, Bronte and Josh, who had not seen us for four months.
