Got away from Rocky Cape about 12.30 pm, heading for Devonport to sail back to mainland. Had a good day and good sailing. Then headed for NSW. Our holiday has come to its end for now, so will post more again soon soon when I go again. I have enjoyed my trip and hope you have enjoyed reading. cheers Judy 🙂
Rocky Cape Camping Rocky Cape camping, very large area, this area has powered sites. Rocky Cape camping, free area, generators allowed, pay for showers. Road from Penguin to Ulverstone on beach road heading to Devonport. Our ship. Night shot heading out of Devonport. Sunday heading to NSW Silo’s in Devonport.
Haven’t done a lot over the last few days but went for a beach drive from Rocky Cape camping spot, out to the National Park, Boat Harbour Beach and to Sisters Beach, then went back to Port Latta to get permission to cut through someones yard to get down to some rocks we wanted to photograph. The winds were very cold today and wasn’t doing me a lot of good, so not to many pics today.
Boat Harbour Beach, very pretty place, the sand was so fine and white. Freedom Camping here as well. Looking back to the settlement. No photo’s of Sisters Beach called into this shop but no where for camping if you have anything bigger than a small campervan, nice wee place though. This area is amazing with a lot of history. This piece of land called Table Cape is an actual plug from a volcano. Light House at Table Cape. View from the Light House grounds. Looking towards the Tulip Farm, they have all been picked, Ive been told it is a picture to be seen when the tulips are in bloom. On our way back saw this art work on a rock face, don’t know what it means as there was no plaque. Someone having a bit of fun with Maggie on the lamp post. Another daggy letterbox. Back at Port Latta, the rock formations are just amazing, photo’s don’t really show it, Straight off the camera, the colours are incredible. This lot looked like concrete had been just dumped.
Got up to a very cloudy morning. Our ranger from Forth arrived, we had a chat. Cooked breakfast and it’s raining hard now but ranger said it will clear by lunch time, he was right. Once it cleared we went for a drive into Penguin, did a few jobs, water in Jerry cans etc..dropped what we needed to off at the camper then headed for Burnie .Big place and busy, a pulp town by the looks of the logs etc.on the docks for export.Went up to the lookout was lovely view. Got back, cold and so we used the time to down load images, had the gene going etc, gas heater on and hotty filled up.
Friday 3rd April Easter
Well I needed to go into Smithton to see a Doctor and after my visit we decided to do the scenic trip back to Rocky Cape where we are now staying. Saw some lovely wee towns on our way back.
Stanley The Nut. The old Stanley building still being used today, they are so beautiful. The old railway station used now for accommodation. Bought lunch here, was so fresh the fish and not small pieces either.
The old lighthouse, it was else where and has been moved. The wharf. The Nut from lookout. Another angle of town. From up at the area where the old communications building was or something similar. The Grange, Port Latta, coal I think. Rocky Cape National Park. Jetty in the back ground of the cliff face. Jetty.
