Holiday Diary - Day 8

Today was quite cool and cloudy. While it is nice to have the warm sun shine it was also something of a relief to have a cooler day.

Today we visited the birthplace of Captain James Cook, where we a variety of animals, some wood carvings, a large vase (marking where the house used to be) and a museum. The village where Capt Cook was born is no longer there as all the buildings were knocked down many years ago.

Here are some of today's photos.

Some Goats

For those interested, 1°12' is the longitude of Cook's birthplace.

The vase marking the position of Cook's home.
The camera has now been recharged, ready for tomorrows adventures.

Tomorrow, after church, we will be headed for Newcastle.
