Here’s part one. More pictures of the Bay of Fires on the eastern coast of Tasmania. One of the kids stole the camera and look…proof that I was there too! I could have stayed there all day, watching the waves crashing on the white sand. TurboBug had a closer view. We were fascinated by the patterns the water was making in the sand. How to Draw a Turtle, by LadyBug. We spotted some blue jellyfish washed up in the seaweed here and there. I’ve read these can sting you even when washed up on the beach like this if you step on the stinger. It’s quite the chore trying to keep the kids from stepping on them. We’ve had good luck so far. TurboBug got quite the surprise when he walked across this super clear water, not realising it was water. ‘Whoa!’ he said, and then splashed and splashed. The sand is so white! It’s from the granite boulders, they make a white sand. The kids played in this spot for some time, standing on those rocks and letting the waves get them. We came back several times, and one time the tide was high enough that they couldn’t safely stand there anymore. I know these pictures seem a bit repetitive, I mean how many pictures of rocks and waves do we need? But they are lovely memories to me! It helps me remember the magnificence of those huge orange-coloured boulders against the white sand and beautiful blue waves.
