Heading to Deloraine

Did a few bits before leaving for Deloraine,  Stopped again at Christmas Hills for my fix of Raspberries and chocolate coated ones. This is a lovely town, very old buildings. The freedom camping is close enough to walk into town, good dump point and nice drinking water, Thanks Deloraine, we spent heaps on groceries and stocked up. Heres a few images of Halls point before leaving.

 Halls point  Halls Point looking North.  Halls point looking south.  Rocks at the point.  Deloraine, railway bridge over the Meander river.  Looking towards town.  View from the entry of freedom camping. Very bedraggled Starling. Think it was molting as there were many like this one.

Halls Point Day 3

Heard the Penguins today so going out to the area tonight. Lots of Penguin tracks this morning on the beach. Good sign. Did another walk to shops, its 3 km so my daily exercise.

 View looking west from our camping spot.  Mutation European Finch.  Silver eye.  Looking up into the hills from camping area.  Mutation European Finch  Bull rushes.  White Butterfly.  Penguin tracks.  Having fun with Seagulls.  Rocks Baby penguin emerging out for a stretch, did you know they don’t poop in the burrow. I witnessed this.

Halls Point Day 2

Nice warm night and no wind. 🙂 All the campers from yesterday have moved on and we have one new camper, so nice and quiet. Did a walk to the corner store, made yoghurt and Bliss balls so been busy.

 Blue Fairy Wren.  This family are taking the horses down to the beach for exercise so I tagged along and asked about photographing the kids, no problems.   Note the man has his dog on a leash, I’m really hot on this subject. Well done.  Camp spot.

Halls Point.

Left Forth by 10 am and went directly to Penguin, approximately 11 km. went to IGA and then out to Halls Point couple of clicks out to camp for 48 hours. Lovely spot for freedom camping with new toilet blocks just down by the Community hall. It is a Penguin Colony so its very special, got to see the penguins again here. Wish the locals would respect the fact that it is a protected area and keep their dogs on a leash.

 The bay looking out from my backyard camping.  These rocks have quiet a story I’ve been told, ancient, scientist come from all over the world and test many rock area’s in Tasmania as its been found that there are many that are the same as in Canada, Nova Scotia.  Another view.  Mum and bub in their burrow. I used long lens so as not to disturb them.
