It has been 4 weeks to the day since we were last here at Rosevears Hotel. We left Launcestons Seaport Marina at lunch time as the tide was slowing, and on the turn.The clouds were shielding the sun as we left the marina that was full of Wooden Boats all displayed, shiny and gleaming with many coats of beautiful varnish at the annual Wooden Boat Festival. It was 12 nautical mile downstream to the Pub, where after a fair bit of jostling we snuggled against the jetty, then waited for the 2 smaller boats to leave before tying Lemaris alongside.
We have done 3 weeks hard labour at the “Convict House”/ White House in Campbell Town. It was built in approx 1820 something!! from convict bricks with the thumb print in and was originally built as the Watchmans residence, part of the Mens and Womens Prison and Hospital grounds. Now listed with the National Trust. We have painted, wallpapered, cleaned and repaired as well as laid new floorcoverings. Now it is ready for sale and a new family to live in and love.
Thankyou very much to all the family, for their help and support in completeing this project.
Now its back to our travels on water and the journey north!
