Camping Trip Bay of Fires Tasmania

Recently the family and I traveled to the East Coast of Tasmania to a very special place called the Bay of Fires. Truth is hubby and the kids journed there last year and I stayed at home and sewed all weekend. They had such a  remarkable time that they convinced me that I had to come this year, ever though it meant no shower for 3 days, and sleeping on the ground in a tent.

Hubby was very excited when we pulled up and discovered that the campsite they stayed in last year was free. He motioned to a small walking track amongst the tress and instructed that we start hauling our gear in that direction. As the trees cleared I was lost for words. This is what I saw.

Hubby must have heard my gasp and proudly exclaimed "See I told you so".

This was the most beautiful camp site that I had ever seen, and we had the place to ourselves.
Here is out campsite taken from the opposite direction.You can just see our tents nestled amongst the trees.


 The kids were able to paddle in the lagoon and walking along the beach was pure bliss.



The Bay of Fires is most famous for its stunning white beaches and rocks which are covered in a natural Lichen.You will soon see what I mean when you look at the photos.



 Here are the kids scrambling over the rocks and if you look very carefully one of them is standing on the large rock in the distance.They are just a small speck!
 Here is Miss Eleven on a rock being King of the World!.

But the photo that says it all was captured by Tony (the Dad of the family that came with us). After returning from a day of bush walking and discovered waterfalls we were greeted with this stunning sunset which lasted about 10 minutes. Isn't it amazing!


Hope you have enjoyed seeing a bit of Tasmania, it is an amazing place to live and I feel very grateful.
Until next time.
Warmly Lenna
