Inside the main dining room at the South Pacific Resort where we are staying, is a scale model of Captain Cook’s ship Endeavour. I noticed it had been on show in the foyer of the Grand Chancellor in Hobart many years ago.
Before arriving on the island, we had to go to Brisbane International Airport and walk kilometre after kilometre from the entrance to get our boarding passes, then through passport check and baggage check, out through the duty free shops and finally along more kilometres to get to our gate. The flight was full and only a few bumps on the way. Another long queue to check passports and quarantine when we arrived on the island.
