Bruny Island, Tasmania

We caugt the ferry over to Bruny Island after my mum and dad flew out of Hobart. 

Now the holiday feel is finally here because Bruny Island is a true holiday destination. We camped for $5 per night in the island's  only hotel's grass paddock, directly across from the sea. Stunning views, and amazing to walk over the road to play in the sand (or do yoga - me), or have a swim in the warm sunshine.

Dusty and Maxie have been collecting sticks and logs to float on the shore - we have a collection of their timber 'boats' stored in the caravan.

We made friends in the grassy paddock - Cain, Verity, Jazelle & Jasmine - had a locally grown gourmet dinner at the Hotel with them plus a number of locally Brewers ciders, before watching the sunset on the beach. The boys had a ball playing with their girlfriends the next day, too. They also sold everything to live in a caravan for a while, and to move to a new house in QLD. Hopefully we'll see them all again one day on the Sunshine Coast - where they are building.

We took a drive to the lighthouse and national park. The boys are having fun tackling each other and racing around pretending to be planes. 

The next day we returned for a walk and swim at the beach and we went for a drive down the beach - our first beach run in the F-250.

The next day, the weather turned a bit overcast, but that didn't stop Tim from collecting our dinner off the rocks at the Bay - oysters. 

And then Tim fired up the bush kettle on the sand of a nearby bay (less oysters) so  the boys had a play, and I had fun with the camera (very picturesque place) before we sat together for a cup of billy tea.

Even on an overcast day, Bruny Island is a beautiful, beautiful place.
