Bay of Fires

Cosy Corner was our camp for a couple of days in the Bay of Fires. Luckily the day we arrived the sun was out and we got to enjoy the pure white beaches and beautifully coloured water. A day trip from the beach took us up to the St. Columba Falls and a forest walk through tree ferns (or “man ferns” as they are called here). With the rain we have had recently the falls were looking very healthy. Apparently these are the tallest falls in Tasmania

On the way back we stopped at the Pub in the Paddock for early refreshments and the opportunity to give the resident pig a beer. Unfortunately for us it seems Pinky was nursing a hangover from the previous day and was not interested in a couple of stubbies. Her predescessor’s sty still stands next door, though unfortunately Priscilla passed away recently.

Next stop the Holy Cow Café for Cheese-tasting and to watch the robotic milking process that even included an impressive automated neck, back and bum massager for those cows in need. The cheese recipe used is the original and the mature cheddar is highly recommended by FiftyToes!

    • Hi Rodger
      With my main lens out of action the photography is going to suffer for a while. I still haven’t cleared the dust off the sensor either. I have had to resort to either wide angle or macro stuff.
      Are you going to join us for a leg at some stage – tin horse alley perhaps and you can join the challenge too!

      I haven’t really had a chance to visit the wineries. Too boring for the kids. I did see a tiger snake the other day. I know you’d love that 🙂
      Take care and love from us all.
