Snow, Sunset, Beach in Winter, Tasmania

On Tuesday June 23, my husband and I are going across the sea, Bass Strait to Melbourne, Australia touring States of Australia for 3 months in our caravan, this we have done in the past several times.  I will put a map on my blog where we are going.
Hopefully I can post at least one photo once a week if not more, it depends on Wi-Fi service and how much data we can use.  When we return home late September I will post more photos of the places we have been.   

I hope you all can follow us as we travel.  I will endeavor to visit your blogs.

This past week we travelled once again to Turners Beach on the North West Coast of Tasmania and stayed for 4 nights.  We had the 4 wheel drive serviced, it's 10,000km one nearby.

Nearly a year has passed since my dear dad passed away, often visit the grave of my parents there, this time someone had stolen the flowers!!  So it was into the city of Devonport to get some more artificial flowers and back to the cemetery to put them in place.  For the life of me, I can't understand why someone would steal those flowers.

On the way to the 'Coast' as we call it, snow was on part of the Western Tiers, so we stopped to take this photo below.




A winter sunset at Turners Beach...lucky it had been a lovely sunny day, then evening.


Also at the same beach there is the Forth River, this photo looks to Bass Strait.


A short walk up the river, the photo of what's on the other side.


Back at the caravan park at sunset.

  1. Margaret, I believe it is going to be a fantastic and long journey. In Poland it is also common that somebody stole flowers from graves. What a terrible custom.

  4. That is a pretty adventurous trip planned.
    I look forward to seeing the photos of the Mildura area, (out of
    personal curiosity), the Adelaide to Darwin sector with the
    off shoot to Uluru.
    I know that you will do a marvellous coverage doing yourself and
    Australia proud for your overseas and stay at home viewers.

    As for the despicable grave robbers - best I not let forth.
    "Craven mongrels" will politely suffice.
    Cheers

    Another brisk sunny morning - cloudless sky.

  5. Beautiful photos Margaret. What an adventure you are about to undertake. To a European, it seems very exotic. I'd be panicked about the distance between petrol stations on those long remote stretches. I guess you have spare petrol containers with you for such trips?

    1. Thank you Craig. Petrol/diesel is available approx. every 150 to 200km even in the remotest areas where we are going. One always fills the vehicle up, always have water..both a must! We do take a drum of diesel just incase...

    I cannot believe the audacity of someone to steal flowers, real or otherwise, at a cemetery. SO wrong.

  14. That's a long time away from your own bed. I like the idea of caravan travel, but I think if faced with actually doing it, I'd be stir crazy in a month or less.
