On Wineglasses

Today we drove out to Freycinet National Park today, on the recommendation of one of our previous hostel's staff. It was a good 2-3 hour drive from Hobart, but it was well worth it. We had a bit of a lazy start to the day and didn't really get on the road till around 11. The drive out was a nice drive, as are most all drives in Australia (and New Zealand for that matter) that we have done so far. The first walk we did was the Wineglass Bay Lookout/Beach walk. You basically walk up and over a small mountain pass to get to the bay. There is a pretty sweet lookout half way there that game an amazing view of the bay.

But the view from down on the beach was pretty good too...

After making the trek back to the car, we drove on over to a lighthouse that was just a few klicks up the road. There was a nice little boardwalk that circled the lighthouse on the cliff and it provided some amazing views. This a shot looking in to Wineglass Bay. It's the little white sand beach way back there on the right.

We also had a pretty killer sunset on the way home...

All in all it was a much better day than I had expected. I love it when that happens.
