A beautiful ending

We are poised to leave Deal island on the 15th of March. The Parks manager arrived with the new caretakers today and we are officially off duty. And the weather couldn’t be better. It’s warm, like summer. It was calm this morning for their trip out. We’ll see how we fare in two days. We’ve spent the past couple of days cleaning and getting everything in order. Now we’ve moved over to the visitor’s house and are visitors. Yesterday we walked to the lighthouse and had fun looking at our shadows. P3120147.JPG

At the end of the day, I had a home brewed stout, which had a creamy foam.


Today, I put the work gloves away. It’s official.

    It must be a weird feeling to be finishing up on Deal Island, your experiences have been amazing. Thanks for sharing them via your blog. If you are back in Launceston on Thursday night we’d love to see you at Knitting in the Pub.

    Come on home to the Adks! Still snow cover so you might have culture shock. It will be nice to see you.
