After a long hiatus, our travels have recommenced! Please welcome my new friend Mr. Ted – woof! He loves traveling around with Enivea and me, and even gets to ride in E’s backpack on long walks.
Just recently, we took advantage of a sunny winter’s day, and explored the old gaol at Robe, on South Australia’s Limestone Coast.
“Constructed in 1860/61 at a cost of 1959 pounds ($3918). Only half of the original design was constructed for male prisoners. A duplicate half on the southern side of the main entrance was to be built at a later date for female prisoners. The gaol remained open until 1870 when it was closed for a short period. it reopened in 1872 and remained open until 1881 when it was finally closed.”
Before that lighthouse was built, the Obelisk was what the sailors used as a marker. It could be seen 20 miles out to sea.
We all had a great day out enjoying the sunshine, and exploring the history of Robe – hope you did too – woof!
