God trip today. Rained for part of the way. Hardly any traffic on Hume Highway, a lot different to when we hurtling up and down from Melbourne to Sydney 40 odd years ago. Quite a pretty trip now through nice green country side. Have not seen a Jacaranda tree since we left Sydney, must be too cold further south. Tomorrow is really the start of the adventure, we put the car on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry, think they start boarding about 4.30 pm and sail about 7.30. Will start to take the seasick tablets tonight as instructed by the Doctor, don't want a repeat of the first night at sea on the cruise.
