Adventures with Renee

My daughter Renee, who lives in Melbourne, decided she needed to get back to home soil and has come to Tasmania for the weekend. Today we decided to go exploring. 

It was forecast to rain today later so we thought we'd stick fairly close to home and seeing Renee hadn't ever been to Marion Bay Beach we decided to go there. But what did we see running along the tops of the dunes. It was Wally, so if anyone asks you Where's Wally, now you know.

As the morning progressed the weather didn't look like it was going to deteriorate that quickly, so we decided to adventure further on down the Tasman Peninsula.

This is the first glimpse of Roaring Beach

This big wombat was here the last time I was here. He is a bit of an enigma, as he's the only wombat that is not nocturnal and seems to enjoy hanging out in the sun.

Django had the best time running, unimpeded from one end of the beach to the other.

After leaving the beach, we saw a sign to a historical site. This is the old coalmine settlement at Slopen Main.

It was a mine which began in the 1840's and was worked by convicts. It now is a World Heritage Site.

Even though the work conditions would have been miserable, the scenery was not.

We were contemplating the purpose of this rock formation. Was it a font, a toilet or a compost bin? Who knows?

This tree with a very short trunk caught my eye. I really want to come back here again to explore further.
