The next day took me to the Tasman National Park on the Tasman Peninsula.

















I camped at the Fortescue Bay at recommendation by Nazza.
I tried fishing again but just after a few minutes I lost my tackle and the old lady next to me caught a little shark.





That's when I decided to stop and go hiking instead. The hiking track went to Cape Hauy and was already 5 pm so I nearly had the howl track for myself.



















When a came back at 8pm my tent was surrounded by Wallabies.

The next morning I went to the historic sites in Port Arthur, a former convict colony. A stunning place but a little bit depressing as well.

































In the afternoon I went back north nearly until St Helens. Chris and his family spend their holiday there in a holiday village and they had a free bed for a couple of nights so they invited me to come over.

On Tuesday morning Chris and I went out on to the ocean with the Zodiac to go fishing. We only caught one useable fish but it was my first Flathead ever.



Later that day they convinced me to go swimming in the ocean. I only said yes because I could wear a wetsuit. But I still started to freeze pretty quick :)

Swimming in Tassie is fresh

Wait till you get back to Vic, we have been down the beach lots lately, the water has been fantastic, but if you really like wearing wetsuits then so be it, you can do that too.

The next day we went sea biscuit riding. I had never done it before so I led Chris's kids go first.









But then it was my turn ... and I fell off really quick :) It is good fun.
