Called into the Anglican church named St. Mary's Church at Hagley on the way home on Thursday. The lane to the church is very narrow as you can see in the last photo. The church's beginnings was in 1856 and opened in 1862.

The Lighthouse near the mouth of the Mersey River in Devonport, Tasmania helps guide The Spirit of Tasmania and a few freight ships into the river to berth. The lighthouse is built on a stone base and is made of bricks, was built in 1889.
Yesterday we drove north west up to Devonport just 100km from home, my parents are buried in the lawn cemetery there and we visited putting flowers on their graves.
The area the photos were taken yesterday is known as 'The Hat'.

Tragic news from Broome in Western Australia (WA) where a shark attacked and killed a man off Cable Beach where the man was body surfing. His body was recovered. This happened a few days ago. The last time a shark killed a man was back in 1993. The beach has been closed for the time being.
My photos of Cable Beach when we were there 5 years ago. It's a small town with this beautiful beach where people come to watch the sunsets, have picnics on the sand mainly for their evening meal. The town is isolated as there are no large towns or cities near it.
I have included a map. Broome is about 6,000km from home here in Launceston, Tasmania. There of course is a shorter route by vehicle but for a part of it is just a track.

Port Arthur is interesting in that it held the Convict Prison from 1833 to 1853. The prison and buildings hold much history as it was a community. I have posted a few photos in 2015 of Port Arthur none of which you see in this post.
