Yesterday on the Island I met a direct ancestor to one of the convicts that survived the brutality of the place. This is part of why I do this work in Strahan. You are telling real stories about real people and occasionally get to meet their descendants. I will never forget the day I met Billy Nichols' great great great grandson. If you've seen the play " The ship that never was", you'll know who I am talking about.
Just had an amazing Strahan big breakfast and am now about to head down the track to Hobart.
