Beach on Tasmania

Beach on Tasmania

We have seen our fair share of beautiful beaches and this one we know what part of the world this beach is – Tasmania – though we can’t remember what the beach was called.

I can remember that we had a good walk and the sun was just peeping through the cloud cover. And that we meet a local lady who while talking to me forgot about the waves and got a bit wet when one hit her.

What I really like about this beach is that the volcanic rock is sticking out of the sand.

The Pinnacle, The Grampians National Park

The view from The Pinnacle in The Grampians National Park in Victoria Australia. Brilliant walk up through the bush and a bit of bouldering to get up to the top for the fantastic view. The haze in the in the distance is a mixture of the heat and the smoke from the wild fires that was burning earlier this year in Victoria.

Tasmanian Bush fires 2013

We arrived into Tasmania amidst of one of the worst bush fires in living memory. You hear and read about it but you really don’t know how bad it is until you see it. The total randomness of the fire – one house, tree or car gone to the ground and right next to it there is a house, tree or car totally unscathed bar a bit of ash.

Our hearts and thoughts goes out to the families who suffered, please donate to the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery fond who are working hard to help.

Once there were twelve

Once there were twelve

Or was there ever Twelve Apostles?

According to wiki there were only nine, made twelve if you counted the three sisters, I think, which are now only two sisters, but there is now only eight after one eroded away, approximately 2 cm per year. Well I’m confused and I forgot to count when there so see how many you can count, remember there is a few behind me so that might make it a wee bit hard for you to count since you can’t see behind me … Ok I’ll stop now.
