Took a drive to visit a friend of mine and then headed up towards where we went yesterday but took a different road, went up Little’s road, lovely farming area with sea views, then headed up off the beaten track exploring,
Nubeen, a small settlement just out from Whites beach.Boat sheds. Farming with magic views from Little’s Road, Fellow deer, young ones
Lovely spot, Cockle Creek is the most southerly road in Australia, Tasmania. Lots of bays, creeks, and little shacks which are very nice I might add. The bush comes down to the ocean. Here are a few images.
Rose Adams shack whom she lived with her husband, quiet a history on her. Another shack by Rose’s house. The Whale. Cockle Creek bay.
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.
Well we went for a drive, the storm has passed , we still have rain and the annex cant go anywhere now. Went to Stanley to see a photo our friend has put into the Cow & Calf Gallery, photography fine art, really lovely art. Got to meet David the owner and Photographer. Next door is the Brown Dog cafe, where we went to have some morning tea, lovely old and unique place. Just loved both their names and there is a story behind the Brown dog but didn’t find out if there was a story behind the gallery name.
We did the walk along the historical area of old buildings in between sheltering in peoples veranda’s, loved this sigh as well, I have removed his phone number. View from Bobs place, looking out over the bay of Stanley. Under the Nut at Stanley. Old railway station down by the jetty. I think this top part of the light house has been moved from somewhere else. Road heading to Railway station and the big crayfish, great fish and chips we bought from there, so fresh. Prices from old. Pound, Shillings and pence. Inside waiting for a train, joking, it is now a cafe. Church Stanley Chair lifts up to the Nut, closed today, winds were very bad. Another view of The Nut. We were at Port Latta, all these gulls were going crazy, then they would all land on the water then take to the air again, but the winds were really blowing them around. Funny to watch. Crayfish Creek on our way back to Rocky Cape. We love this sigh, hell yer great. Haha. Crayfish creek heading out to sea.
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.
Stopped for a picnic, so cold we were sitting with Katie’s blankets around us so much fun.
