One of the most iconic viewpoints in Tasmania is a bay called Wineglass Bay. The bay looks like a wine glass but the other story is that this is where the whalers used to come to take refuge and slaughter their whales, the sea would turn red and the sand black from all the left over rotting flesh. Neither pretty nor a desirable place to be but whaling was so much a part of Tasmanian life. There are no such horrors any more and the passage through the Hazard mountains is full of vistas and pink granite boulders which are nothing short of impressive. The water is green, the sand is white and having a swim here involves a long, long walk.
A small moment to rest on a specially made saddle seat.
