Virtue Vision Voyages Devonport Day out

We went to the North Shore on the ferry to a little harbor village called Devonport. Getting out of the city we recognize what an incredible beautiful and green country this is. The down side is that we are both miserable with hay fever and allergies. Claritin can’t bust our sneezing fits and itchy eyes.

Jack is here. He is so much fun!!



Devonport is fancy. We watched little kids in their whites play cricket. It reminds me of Brighton, in the south of England. It seems every chance they got, the migrants from UK tried to make their newly colonized home as much like ‘old blighty’ –England- as possible. (See also Australia and parts of South Africa, Carribean, Africa and USA).
