Snug Bay







Our last port before our cruise comes to an end we are hoping to see whales. This is the primo spot for whale watching in Australia--but the season is coming to a close. We will be touring around Twofold Bay to admire the views, hear the whaling tales and hopefully see a few (the reviews say there are often up to 60 in the bay) whales. Alas, out of the 101 whale watching cruises this team has done this season, we are the first to not have a sighting. We motor past the mussel fields, head past the wood chip mill, admire the beautiful home built by John Logan for his private residence. (it took 3 years, 300 people and 34,000 pounds to complete.) Then after brief use as a guest home, it was used as a prison farm. In the 1970's, the forestry Commission took it over and uses it for guest accommodations.
