Blowing away the cobwebs

I had been doing well with the weather in Tasmania, but on my last day came the wind and rain. I was headed to Wine Glass Bay with some short tracks to see in the National Park on the way.

The first stop was Cape Tourville Lighthouse, listed on Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks. It’s a very brief stroll, but offers good views even on a misty morning.

 

Next stop was Sleepy Bay. I wasn’t expecting much as I started on the trail, but as it wound down to the ocean and opened up so too did my smile. A cute little cove dwarfed by pink granite boulders and a broody ocean lapping against them. Nature undisturbed. I can understand how people compare Tasmania to Ireland when I see places like this…. or maybe it was the rain that reminded me of home!

The last trail of the day took me to Wine Glass Bay and in keeping with the theme of the previous few days a swim was obligatory when I reached the beach. It was so refreshing, I almost forgot I had to get myself back up the hill!
