East Coast Road Tasmania with Zeb and Eider

Zeb and Eider Duck and the humans are driving in Tasmania.   Leaving the Hobart area, we head north to the East Coast Road    We stop at the Prosser River at a boat launching place.

We see no other humans.  It is so peaceful and beautiful.    Look at this clear water.

Look at these shells

We can see these shells so clearly.   And, none of these shells seem to be broken.   Aren’t they beautiful?   We stopped in Orford for breakfast.

As we travel near the east coast of Tasmania, we saw several vineyards.   This is winter in Tasmania, so the vines are cut back.

There were several wineries we passed that were open for tours and tasting.   We did not stop.  The humans were more interested in the water views.   Just north of Swansea, we drove to the end of the Nine Mile Beach Road to another boat launch at Bagot Point Coastal Reserve.

Driving on that road brought us here

This was looking back at the road that guided us here.   We saw stormy skies here.

Just a couple yellow rocks among the regular rock colored ones.    Driving in Tasmania, we saw so many sheep.   Many more than sheep than people.

We love the sheep

We are fascinated with these sheep.   Different sizes, some recently sheared, some with heavier coats.   We love them all.     This is 4 Mile Creek, north of St. Marys.
