Thursday 16th April. Last day on Bruny Island
Well we have had just the best time here, our last day was spent driving to the south of Bruny and through the Neck, calling into different bays, having a stop off at the local Cheese place. The kids got oysters fresh from the rocks at Barnes Bay, they were everywhere and big. When we stopped at Dennes Point at the Jetty, a chap told us that as the crow flies this is the closest land to the main Tasmania land but the channel is very bad, that’s why the main crossing is way down further. Took a scenic drive back around on dirt roads get to see real nice scenery. Never now what you come across.
Couple of birds I don’t know their names yet. Blowhole over Basalt Rocks. Bruny Island Art Adventure. Small settlement. Heaps of these Tasmanian Native hens. this one is out the side of the house we’re in. Wallbies in ur yard, I was sitting on the step, they weren’t worried. The Albino again. Took from the car as you can see. Barnes Bay. This is the closest point to mainland Tasmania. Long dirt road, must be lots of homes up there. Boarding the ferry to go over to Kettering. Autumn colours from the car. Driving through a big town on our way to Seven Mile beach.
Tuesday 14th April
Had a good nights sleep and were up early to go on a boat trip on the Bruny Island Adventure cruise. To many photos to show all of them but picked out what I hope will interest people. Was a fantastic day.
Got up early and went down the beach, caught the early light on the foot way and seating, very beautiful for a walk down the beach. This is the beach outside our van park. Everyone waiting to board the cruise boat. Father and Son The arch way, we didn’t go through it. Looking at the kelp growing on the rocks. The other boat, which is the same one as we are on. kelp gardens. Rock pillars and formations. Facing into the sun but took it any ways, we had just come through and then watched the other boat coming through. Blow hole. Seals in sun and playing in the kelp. Got back and what a wonderful sunset to finish the day off.
Monday 13th April
Well the four of us are heading off to catch the ferry to Bruny Island for four nights, Dons son and his partner are there as well, we have met up from different directions for this trip. This is our 1st day, we are based at Adventure bay in a van park in a onsite van we are sharing. These photos are pretty much self explanatory, just beach scenes and rocks with amazing colours.
