Day Eight 11/01/12

Wineglass Bay is one of the most beautiful natural harbours I know and according to Wikipedia has been voted by several international travel authorities as one of the worlds top ten beaches. No surprise. Pure white sand and turquoise water fringed by steep eucalyptus hills and granite tors.  Because Freycinet is in the eastern rainshadow of Tasmania it enjoys a climate similar to France, receiving over 300 days of sunshine every year, and only 600ml of rainfall. Unfortunately today is one of the other 65, so I have borrowed an aerial photo from “Pure Tasmania” to show off where we are. We have dropped anchor in the cove at the bottom right of the photo
