13/365 Meeting the locals

Shot on iPhone 5.

Today we went on a hike to Wineglass Bay, at Freycinet on the east coast of Tasmania. In terms of day walks, it doesn't get much more spectacular. The bay (you'll see it in comments), is that crystal clear water you see in TV ads for exotic locations. On the beach, we met a very inquisitive wallaby. My iPhone shots don't tend to have a lot of "up close with native fauna" about them. So, for something different, meet the bloke I met today. You can see more of him in comments.

It is a place of absolute beauty - although the history is tainted. The name Wineglass Bay comes from the shape (see pic in comments), but also during the years of whaling, they would butcher the carcasses on the beach and the bay would run red with their blood.

And to my regular flickr buds, I'm restricting my flickr time while we're on a family holiday in a motorhome this week. I know I'm being slack with comments and will catch up. I am looking at your pics - just not getting the time to comment. I've seen Neil and his choice of good and evil, Heather being an absolute trooper in keeping going while she's sick, Perry taking a cool shot of his wife running off (apparently), Matt doing killer landscapes, Kate finding some cool street art, G in Hawaii, Slackpacket doing a shot that truly needs no words, Clare, ... well, I'm stopping there. As I said, I'm looking and admiring and will catch up with you all soon
