Electricity comes from a diesel generator and cost means that all electric light bulbs are around 60 watts and no conducive to stitching. So the productivity result for a week was stitching zilch but book reading seven books (and one audio book off my iPod!) All in all very refreshing and I feel great benefit from my week away.
This little Island has great history of descent from the mutineers of HMS Bounty and of convict penal settlements and provides a lot of interest for visitors. Here's a few snapshots to show you some of what I saw.
|Anson Bay on the North West coast|
|The foreman's house at the time of the penal settlement - since restored of course|
|The famous Norfolk Pines that Captain Cook found had too many branches and knots to be used for ship masts for Her Majesty's Navy|
|The commemoration of where Captain Cook first landed in 1777|
|A view to the only accessible swimming beach on the south coast of the island|
And I'll be back soon with some more snapshots and an update on the Bargello Sewing Case.
