Most southern street in Australia
13 March 2012 | Recherche Bay
Lesley and Phil
Today started with a beautiful morning and continued in that vein. We had a gentle down wind sail to Recherché Bay under sunny skies, arriving just before lunch, to find a really beautiful bay. This is a relatively major camping area but with limited facilities - water and toilet only - and so we are sharing the area with a number of campers. Cockle Creek is just delightful - a sandy bottom creek with lovely clear pale green water. There is a sign just near Cockle Creek that claims the road in as the southernmost street in Australia. We went on a very interesting walk this afternoon to Fisher's Point which took us along the beach, over some rocks and through a mossy cool forest. Time now for a shower, and preparation for tomorrow when we will leave here at 4am for the 70 nautical mile trip "around the corner" to Port Davey. At some point tomorrow we will turn our faces north towards home, although we have a lot more holiday to go. We are very much looking forward to the two west coast destinations and hope that the promise of all the crushing guides holds true. No more photos until I can get the laptop charged up again which will be at least 5 days away.
