Norfolk Island Settlers Decendants

200 years ago, the "City of Edinburgh" departed Norfolk Island bringing the ancestors of Graeme and his cousin Libby to Hobart. The rest they say is history!

Today it was celebrated by a leisurely cruise on the Derwent River aboard the replica tall ship the "Lady Nelson".
A somewhat nippy day but calm, which didn't describe my nerves when I saw Noel don his life jacket! :-)

Hobart from the river presents beautiful scenery, including Government house, Mount Wellington and Sandy Bay.
