Sea Urchins at Knobby Head
| |

Geraldton was the first sizeable city we’d seen since Darwin.  While we were there we managed to get to a few things on our list, including a haircut for LadyBug and TurboBug.  Isn’t LadyBug’s hair the cutest?  She’d been asking to have it cut off for awhile but we wanted her to be sure since for more than a year she’s been saying she wanted to grow it as long as Rapunzel.  When it was TurboBug’s turn the hairdresser commented … Read More

The Devil’s Marbles – Karlu Karlu
| |

If you drive the Stuart Highway you literally can’t miss the Devil’s Marbles since the highway cuts right through them.  When we drove south after our stay in Tennant Creek we oooh’d and ahhh’d at the sight and made plans to stop here on our way back north.  I really had my heart set on camping here for a night because the sunset hitting these rocks is supposed to be beautiful.  During peak season this campground fills by early afternoon.  … Read More

Catching the Ferry to Bruny Island
| |

Our next stop after exploring Hobart was Bruny Island.  We were all looking really forward to this.  Before staying in Snug we had spent a couple of nights in Triabunna with the intention of visiting Maria Island.  (Which is pronounced muh-RYE-uh.  Because we are in Australia and they like to do their own thing when it comes to pronunciation.)  When we got there we decided it was just not in our budget, it cost too much for a day-trip for … Read More

Bay of Fires, Tasmania: part three!
| |

Yep, more pictures.  Here’s parts one and two.  The next time we went to the beach it was sunny.  So beautiful! I came across this sand castle that some other family must have made. That’s Dad with TurboBug on the rock, watching the waves. TurboBug was cuddling close because of the wind.  Before I took this a giant wave crashed right next to them and the spray went higher than them. The riptide was so, so strong.  We didn’t let … Read More

Bay of Fires, Tasmania: part two!
| |

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 … Read More

Bay of Fires, Tasmania
| |

From Scottsdale we made our way to St Helens.  We found this fabulous playground to stop at for lunch.  After seeing pictures of the Bay of Fires Conservation Area I really had my heart set on camping up there, so we headed just north of town to see what was available. We ended up at the Cosy Corner camping area.  There are two sections to this campground and we discovered later that the other section is better suited to caravans.  … Read More
