Friday 31st January - Port WelshpoolAnother hot and humid day. You would think that we are currently in the tropics. A warm 21.9 last night and back upto 33.1 today. Clive went out for a drive to Agnes Falls in the morning. This is about 15km away. Agnes Falls is the longest singe drop falls in Victoria. They also have a river walk there and BBQ and picnic area. From there he went for a drive around town and then to Long Jetty. A walk along this to the very end. The original Long Jetty is the only curved jetty in Victoria. Originally 851m long of various widths, it was expanded to 911m in length in 1982 to provide berthing facilities for Bass Strait oil and gas industry rig vessels. The jetty was built in a curve to take advantage of the very deep Lewis Channel that runs parallel to the shore. With the jetty aligned to the channel this made Port Welshpool an ideal port for large ships. Of course a T shaped jetty could achieve this, but not if you want to run trains down it! At the end of the jetty is the slipway with winch and also a Broman Diving Bell. Most of the afternoon was spent talking to Insurance Companies, Repairers and the Real Estate agent about the damage caused by flooding to our house and as to when and how repairs will happen. The house needs to be vacated for 30 days, so the tenants have to move out. Part of the ceiling and walls will be ripped down and replaced and the new floating floor also ripped up and replaced.
