Tasmania Trip - Day 33

Day 33 - 26/2/2014 – Devonport to Melbourne

Another sleep in and late start. It was going to be pretty much just a day just sitting around and taking it easy. We couldn't board until 5pm for a 7:30pm departure, and we were only 10 minutes away from the boarding dock. The van park was really good as you could pay about $10 extra and you could stay on the site until you needed to board. In hindsight we could have spent an extra day somewhere else and just driven into Devonport closer to boarding time. However it was good just having another recuperation day because we had a long drive ahead of us.
Another Quantum 3 in front if us

The trip back to Melbourne was going to be a little better than the trip over. It was only going to be 2.5m seas compared to the 3.5m seas we had on the way over. We were also straight into the open ocean, which at least we would get a few hours of sleep once we hit the sheltered waters of Port Phillip Bay before arriving in Melbourne.

That night I also caught with the other Quantum owners from the boarding queue, Shaune and Sue, in the bar for a few beers :-).
