Wineglass Bay ,
You can walk all the way up to the lookout & back, or all the way down the other side to wineglass bay & back again. Well we walk there & back of course if your with Mark what else would you do. It is hard so you need to be able to walk a fair way, the first half is ok to the look out but the second half is further , steeper & harder. We got to the look out it is unbelievable the beach the massive boulders the trees the distance you have to go to get there.
At the top the views where so amazing everyone was taking picks of the water but the boulders where more impressive so I took pic’s of them the size of them & how they where balancing there they are so huge you have to see them.
The kids did it easy we got to the bottom & had lunch on the beach you have to take your own of course there are no toilets either so pick a shrub, the wind was blowing & it was cold so no swimming, the kids where not happy .
After about 1 hour we headed back I was dreading it as I’am so unfit & I saw the people coming back up on my way down it was not pretty.
So off we go I grab a big stick to help me up those steps, I will have buns of steel if I keep on doing all this walking up mountain sides it’s ok for Mark he is hyperactive & goes for hours

We have been to ST Helens which was beautiful we are now in Coles Bay there isn't much here but the beaches and the scenery are so amazing. Mark has taken Alyssa & Mason fishing tonight we will see how that goes.
It's hard getting use to living in a small space. Mark has started the schooling "oh what fun thats going to be" I'am not sure how we will get it all done we have so much else to do.

we headed down the path of this ancient forest the ferns are huge and so are the trees, the path that leads down to the fall is like a big play ground , lots of places to hide & explore I had the best time I felt like a big kid taking photos of everything I could, the fungi on the trees the moss and I haven’t even got to the falls yet.
The kid show the same enthusiasm they where so excited not knowing which way to go first.

It drizzled with rain the whole way but that was part of the fun, the falls were just as amazing . We where there on our own we saw two people it felt like we where the only ones left on earth. We headed home we thought we would try our luck to see if Mason ‘s jacket was still there after about 4 hours so back to the gorge we went & would you believe it was still sitting there were he had left it. (He did find a lady beetle the day before & he said it was good luck well he could be right).


Today we went to cataract gorge it was good we walked along the walk up to one of the look outs we saw lots of lizards & two rock wallaby’s it is a massive gorge well worth to look if you are in Launceston.
We the headed to Liffey falls not to far out, on the way Mason tells me he has left his raincoat at the park, “way to go Mason” we were to far along to turn back.
