Day three? Are you releasing your story halfway through the plot like the original Star Wars trilogy? Damn right I am. Besides, it seems like the best way considering this is my first blog post and I'm over halfway through my travels.
"I'll start my blogging by making it all out of order. This is how I'll build a following like all those other cool travel blogs. Someone will give me free stuff for this. I'm a genius."
For day three of our trip, Susan and I had two goals on the itinerary: brunch and beach. Our Airbnb was in Hobart and all of the 'good beaches' that were recommend were over two and a half hours out. So after a well deserved vacation sleep in, we hopped into the rental car and went for a drive on the left side of the road. (Meaning Susan drove and I DJ/navigated. As most people know, I still don't have my license. Shame, shame, I know. I promise it's the only thing I care about on my 'New Years Resolutions List 2018')
Our Airbnb had this beautiful sunroom. I tried to take a cool traveler selfie, but I just look bored. What's new?
Shout out to this market place that gave us a ticket because we needed a pass to park there. Even though there was no signage about this.
When we were 45 minute away from our final destination beach, we found this beach that reminded me so much of Hawaii except the water was freezing. After all, it's the closest we've ever been stepping in the Antarctic Ocean.
Peed in a bush? Cool. It's time to go to our final destination. Bicheno beach.
I may have grown up with Hawaii beaches, but the beautiful untouched white soft sand and clear water of Tasmania was starting to win my heart over.
From here, we began to walk through four inches of the clearest water to a little island just off the shore. Cue the birds flying away from us.
Climbed over a few rocks and...
Is this even real?
Of course I had to strike a cooler traveler pose to replace my boring ones from the morning. I thank round sunglasses and a half a bottle of wine for giving me the confidence and belief I could pull it off.
I tried to do a timed photo with Susan and I both in it, but I didn't make it in time. So here is me trying to poop next to Susan.
The sun was starting to set. And with that two and a half hour drive ahead, it was time to go back.
Bye for now Tassie beach.
Highlight from the drive back was seeing wild wallabies hop away from from us. You can't really make it out, but it was a movie magic moment even though they didn't want anything to do with us and our cameras.
More travel post to come soon!
Just give me the will to edit them.
