Hello friends, last weekend was a busy one as I played tour guide and showed my friend Neetha (who had come all the way from London) a bit of my beautiful home state.
Friday we popped out to Mona Museum, which is one of my favourite spots.
On Saturday we went to the Salamanca Markets and spent quite a bit of the day pottering about, despite the drizzle.Then on Sunday we took the drive up the east coast to Coles Bay and the Freycinet National Park.
It's such a lovely spot. The road sign above really amused me - that is one very big kangaroo. Funnily enough though, a few years ago when Mum and I went up there for a drive a huge kangaroo did jump out and hit the side of the car - in broad daylight. It was terrifying! I'm pretty sure he was ok as he hopped away.
The lovely red lichen covered rocks of Coles Bay looking over towards the Hazards.
More rocks :)
This lovely wallaby was hanging around the car park in Freycinet. I was surprised to see the rather big, but still pretty hairless joey in her pouch.
The large granite boulders are amazing.
I tell you what, the walk up to the Wineglass Bay lookout made me realise I really am rather unfit. I must do something about that.
What a beautiful scene. It is called Wineglass Bay due to the shape, but also as it was a spot where the whaling ships last century would round up and slaughter whales. The water would apparently turn red, like a glass of red wine. It is much more beautiful now that the whales are safe :)
Have you visited Freycinet?
