Tassie’s North Coast

Sunday November 1, 2009

Over the past few weeks I have been spending some time on the north coast of Tas, in the Georgetown area. There is a combination of dramatic beaches full of jagged rocks and vivid red and yellow lichens; and peaceful sandy beaches stretching for miles along the coast. Unfortunately there was also a big fire burning on the eastern edge of the beach at Beechford, and the smoke blew right across the perfect blue sky out to the western horizon, which meant an urgent rethink of location - luckily Bellbouy beach closer to Georgetown was more cooperative!
