This walk is going back a few years when on a holiday in Tasmania. What prompted me to do this post was a few days ago when I used my shadow photo.
I guess we better get down on the beach
The beach was quite a long one but the walk wasn’t all that far
The setting Sun on a warm October day
Every one liked my long legs so I thought I would have a friend join me and you can now have double the enjoyment. The setting sun is the best time to get that long leg feeling
Among the dunes, the Pig Face was flowering
The colourful rocks of the Bay of Fires. The red is a lichen that grows on the granite rocks
There was a Pacific Gull hanging out on the rocks
*”The Bay of Fires did not actually earn its name because of its appearance. It was named “Bay of Fires” in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux, who looked out and saw countless fires along the Tasmanian coast”
Today wasn’t a good walking day. I didn’t want to drive to walk somewhere and the gravel trucks have been trundling up and down all day. You wouldn’t believe the dust they throw up.
Therefore I want to take you on a bit of a walk along the track to the beach at Evans Head. Here’s your song so let’s go
Out of the car park down we go. On the top of the hind dune She-oaks and Banksias are growing
Sometimes the track goes up and over the next dune and a small stream
Once the vegetation starts to change you know you are getting close to the beach. The Pandanus are the dominant vegetation on thee front dunes and beach and they even grow on rocks.
And around the last bend, through some Pandanus and onto the sand
Sometimes the welcoming committee is large
and at other times, just a couple to greet you but someone will always be on the sand to greet you
PS I know lots of you have seen this little bloke. This is where he was put together with a Pandanus nut and some red kelp. I wonder how long he was sitting in the Paperbark tree before some one noticed. I hope he was treated kindly.
