Having just completed my last blog entry about our Tasmanian holiday, finishing with a visit to Port Arthur, I have been reading the news with regards to the Tasmanian bush-fires, that are still raging as I write.
We spent a wonderful week in Tasmania just before Christmas, barely two weeks ago. We visited various places, and travelled through Dunalley, and some of the other beautiful areas that have since been devastated. When we visited Port Arthur, it was packed with historical information and tourists; now it is packed with people fleeing the bush-fires.
My thoughts and prayers are with the fire-fighters, and all those affected – may you and all your loved-ones be kept safe.
