Port Arthur - Day 4

Monday 10 March 2014

Forecast for today was mostly cloudy with a chance of a shower later in the day and a temperature range of 13 to 23 degrees.

When David went to collect our newspapers from the local shop he noticed that someone had helped themselves to about a third of our wood-pile during the night - thankfully they had not helped themselves to anything else. The caravan park has emptied out today being the end of the long weekend, so hopefully the low-lives have moved on!

About mid morning Michelle and Craig arrived with Bronte and Josh. The grandchildren were looking forward to going out in the rubber duck to catch some fish. We drove around to Stewarts Bay and launched the Zodiac and motored across the bay. The kids managed to each catch a fish large enough to keep, however we threw back many flatties that were too small to keep. We also caught a couple of small mackerel and a parrot fish that were also thrown back.

At about one hundred meters from the beach the kids decided to roll out of the dinghy and they swam to the beach while we continued to shore without them. Back at camp David cleaned and filleted the fish, which Bronte and Josh had for lunch. We also barbequed a few sausages for lunch then sat around the fire while the kids toasted marshmallows on the fire.
