I awoke about 4:00 and thought the ferry had stopped, I was amazed that we had arrived so quickly as I could see the lights of what I thought was Melbourne. I knew we wouldn’t be disembarking until 6:30 so went back to sleep. At 5:30 we were both awake and the ferry was moving slowly towards Melbourne, I’d been mistaken and the lights I’d seen before were the lights of Geelong.
After making good use of the lovely hot shower we organised ourselves and thought we’d go out onto the deck to watch the sunrise but there was a fly in that ointment. Smoking is only allowed outside so it seemed that wherever we stood we were in range of smoke so we went back into the lounge.
Our car section was the last one to disembark, Alex had put our destination into the GPS so figured we’d be fine getting out of Melbourne. No. The cyborg told us to turn left when everyone else was turning right. Alex believed the cyborg and we headed for an area where semis were heading into a loading area. Luckily we were able to do a loop around and get back into the lane going towards the city and the West Gate Bridge.
We had a photo stop and breakfast at Ballarat then just continued on the freeway. Another photo stop for the Kaniva sheep and lunch then off again. We saw a few caravans heading off in the opposite direction and I was sorry our holiday was over but it is nice to be home.
Maybe we’ll get to Tassie again and have more time so we can revisit the places we loved and go to places we couldn’t manage this time, there’s certainly plenty to see and do.
