WBSW9: Wineglass Bay Evening Sail

It was a wonderful day to be in the ketch in Wineglass Bay because not only was it a fine day but we were surrounded by a profusion of wildlife.  There were shoals of fish in the bay which had attracted seals, seabirds and dolphins.  Here we see a little tern diving for fish and behind that a colony of Australian fur seals is hauled out on the rocks.  There is also a little black cormorant on the rock at the right.

This is the last post of the Wineglass Bay Sail/ Walk.  We walked out to the carpark the next day and thence a bus trip to Hobart, but I took few photographs then.  Still a few more posts to come from the trip back from Tasmania and I’ll also do a few mono posts.

Wineglass Bay Sail Walk Day 5

This morning we had breakfast off Schouten Island and then sailed to Cook’s Beach at the western side of Freycinet Peninsula where we walked along the Pensinsula Track to Wineglass Bay.  What follows is some plants and views from walking along the track.

And here we are, at the end of the track at the northern end of the beach at Wineglass Bay.  There’s a kelp gull on the beach, some people walking along it and the ketch in the distance.  You may need to click on the image to see that.
