We bid our lovely hosts at Highfield House farewell after our wonderful breakfast, and headed into town for me to show Shane this gorgeous city. I also wanted to find a little gold apple for my charm bracelet, and then Shane and I were heading out for a cruise on the Tamar River on a little old paddle steamer that would take us into Cataract Gorge. I had been to Cataract Gorge many times before but had always walked to the pretty park area with the chairlift and stunning peacocks, however, this time I thought it might be nice to see it from a different perspective. We enjoyed our cruise, and then were dropped off at the pier near the Penny Royal World.
We did the tourist thing and went to have a look around The Mole Hill Fantasy.
After leaving Penny Royal World, we drove north along the East side of the Tamar River to the Low Head Lighthouse past the Batman Bridge, the first cable-stayed bridge in Australia.
Our destination tonight was the TasVillas Bridport Resort in Bridport. This little seaside town is another town that fills to overflowing in the summertime but as it was autumn there were not many tourists around and again we pretty much had the place to ourselves, heated spa and all. There was no roaring fire tonight but after dinner, we spent the night relaxing in the spa and swimming in the pool before heading to bed.
