Our Tasmanian Adventure – Day 2

It rained overnight and was still pretty wild and wet as we drove to Marrawah on the far North West Coast of Tasmania, absolutely stunning. It stopped raining long enough to grab a few photos, and then the skies opened again. This was a game of tag we seemed to play for the next few…

Notably our first Day was not overly exciting and I was close to not really mentioning much, but I did take a few photos and I thought it was worth a quick mention. We woke early and of course witnessed the most glorious sunrise while travelling on the freeway with the camera packed securely in…
