Devonport Lighthouse

I arrived in Devonport the evening before I caught the Spirit of Tasmania to come home, but the extra time was not wasted.  I went to the lighthouse in the hope of catching a sunset across the sea, but the view was not sufficiently Westerly.  I did manage to get some great shots of the lighthouse against the sun and then with an amazing pink sky behind it.  The next day was spent exploring the town, visiting Home Hill, the home of Joseph Lyons who was once Prime Minister of Australia, and his wife Dame Enid with their twelve children.  I also traveled to Sheffield to view the many murals painted on walls in the town, and to La Trobe an interesting town with old buildings, before returning to board the Ferry for a rough crossing of Bass Straight to Melbourne overnight.
