Australia Day Weekend
We celebrated the Australia Day long-weekend in typically Aussie style. We went with eight friends to stay in a little shack complete with corrugated iron bathroom, in the far south east of Tasmania.
We went out on the boats, fished, played beach cricket, walked, went swimming, kayaked, played board games, had a few drinks and ate freshly caught fish and abalone (mmmm). It was brilliant to be out in the fresh air, and that view……. to me there is something amazing about looking out onto the ocean and knowing that there is nothing but more sea until you hit Antarctica.
I realised too that I need to get a polarizing filter for my camera so that I can properly capture the amazing turquoise colour of the water! It’s dreamy – sadly absolutely freezing for swimming in : )
