Things to do while stranded.

 There has been plenty to do while we wait for Arthur Hwy to open. The caravan park has a hot pool, put put golf and a park for the kids. I recently discovered the free WiFi for Nubeena refugees :) There is a wood fire pizza and pasta restaurant but the corner shop is a 20min walk along a busy hwy.

The lady at the desk has been very accommodating and she gave the kids a free game of put put and entry into the hot pool. Stu introduced himself to some other campers who also left their car in Nubeena.

 William had his haircut by the resident hairdresser in the bus that is owned by the newlywed Irish lady who is a self proclaimed 'tart at heart.' She's onto her forth husband and trying to keep up with Liz Taylor but in her words 'they won't friggin leave fast enough.' Her new husband Pete gave me a lift into the corner shop for bread and milk.

The boys have watched movies from the hard drive, caught up on some rest and found a new love of origami.

We caught the Tassie Link bus from right outside the caravan park to Hobart city. It was nice to stroll around and we happened to run into an ex Lyneham teacher who was also stranded with her husband and their 3 young boys.  

 We ate the best Japanese since our America trip and booked a bus tour for tomorrow. Avis decided the road won't be opened for at least a week so kindly refunded us for the days we didn't use the car and waived the retrieval fee after some bad press which was stirred up with some strongly worded emails by Juliette herself.
