Here we were at Station Pier in Port Melbourne, and the waiting was excruciating. We had arrived about midday, our ticket said we had to check-in one and a half hours prior to departure. Yes I know, departure time was 9 pm, but we just wanted to make sure that we got there, considering the amount of trouble we’d been having with the car. We had a bite to eat at the Rex Hunt’s D’lish Fish takeaway and hung around, just staring at that gleaming big boat, the Spirit of Tasmania I.

Although there was considerable cloud cover, the sun did on occasion break through, and it did look like a great place to live, especially if you enjoyed the ocean view and watching the activity on the water and at the pier. We strolled around during the wait, checking out the local shops and sculptures.

One thing you should know about is that, unless you have an electronic toll tag in your car, you should not use their tollway getting to Port Melbourne. How else you would get there, beats us. Yes we saw the signs saying tollway, and we expected to pay, but not being from around here, we thought it would be like Sydney and we could pay at a toll booth. Well, before we saw any toll booth, we saw the sign to turnoff for the Spirit of Tasmania. So we certainly were surprised to get the traffic infringement notice.
