Happy Australia Day

Another short leg this morning

Never seen spotty sheep like these before.

We are moored just before the Foulridge tunnel by the old Lime Kiln, in preparation for going through tomorrow.

The entry is controlled by trafffic lights as the tunnel is 1.5 km long. I'm not looking forward to the passage being somewhat claustrophobic, but looking through it I could see light at the end!

The lights are green at this end for 10 minutes at the start of the hour and we will need to have the wheel house down, so if it's not raining in the morning we will make our way through.

If it is raining we'll stay another day.

Apparently the lime was required when building the tunnel.

Happy Australia Day everyone.
