There was a second bedroom but as we booked as a couple it was locked. Doesn't sit well with me.

Saturday and it was off to a well reviewed Van bone restaurant at Marion Bay. On the way we stopped off near Eaglehawk Neck and visited the Blow hole -

Now you can walk down to the pavement and walk across it. But not at high tide and the tide was coming in.

The walk to the Pavement is across the road fropm an old ghotel.Though to the left around the corner they have built some apartments that look quite nice and overlook the sea and Eaglehawk Neck.

The next stop was the Van Bone restaurant a few Kms up the road at Marion Bay. This was for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. A report is here -

Then a slow trip back to the Lodge the long way. First via Dunalley and their old pub.

Then close to the Lodge is the McHenry Distillery.

We arrived just after 4pm and unfortunately couldn't partake of the gin tasting for $15. But said the boss I allowed to let you taste any product you want to buy. So tried 4 and bought 2.

Then a short stop at the Port Arthur gift shop. Boy the trees have grown since our visit 40 years ago.

Looked at the menu of the restaurant there and probably should have eaten there on the friday night.

Sunday and time to head back to Lonnie.Stopped at Dunalley for me to have a scallop pie from the Dunalley bakery.They get good reveiws and mine was quite good. Sauce a little thin and pastry a bit too flaky.

Eaten beside the Denison Canal. It is only recently you could access the canal banks .

The walkway along the Canal was a Community project after the disasterous fires of 2013.
