Today I toured with a lovely family visiting from the USA off the Emerald Princess Cruise Ship  docked in Port Arthur today. They wanted to also experience a little more of the Tasman Peninsula than just Port Arthur , so it was off to all the lookouts and a lovely lunch at the Dunalley Art Cafe. A good taste of what the Tasman Peninsula has to offer.

Today their private tour took them to  Cradle Mountain in the North West of Tasmania and although it was a little overcast they still got to see the Cradle and enjoyed a few short walks..
