Day 80

Wednesday 20th May

Well it was a very cold night, woke early and went to the kitchen and made a drink, wrapped myself in a big cuddly blanket and was drinking it when the other traveller chap popped his head in and was shocked to see me, this is at 5 am. When the sun rose it was so foggy, i got dressed and went out to take photo’s. We then had breakfast and headed off to St Columba Falls, what a sight, just to massive to fit in one shot. The forest was beautiful, just love the green moss on all the dead trees and the Punga ferns are massive.

Day 46

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.
