Thursday 18th July

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

Poor lambs being born in the middle of winter,

Wednesday 8th Cockle Creek

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.

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.

Day 66

Wednesday 6th May

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.
