Kingfisher on the Arthur River

Camp visitor Port Arthur

Despite Colleens burning desire to go the big spit, call for Ralph or Bert when even approaching a boat. We loaded up on this coastal rocket in Port Arthur and zoomed to the bottom of Australia. Not a Herbi to be heard the whole trip.

Thousand foot cliff and pillars.

Hazards Beach

Richardson's Beach

Wineglass Bay

Richardson's Beach -Our camp beach Colleen 'stuck' here for 3 days whilst I drove and got the landrover transported to Launceston to fix turbo break down. Returned today for 5.5hr walk including Wineglass Bay & Hazards Beach. I added yet another 'missed the snake' incident to out travels. Fortunately this time small and dead. so far my results are:

  • Stepped over two live ones then spotted by Colleen.
  • Stepped over one dead one then spotted by Colleen.
  • Spotted one big one not seen by Colleen.
  • Decided to revise 1st aid kit to add pressure bandages for the seemingly inevitable
    '#$%& I've stepped on a snake and its bitten me' event.

Love trees

Colleen feeling some what triumphant having made it to Wineglass Bay!
