Tasmania day 4 - Bay of Fires

The weather had gone cooler during the night and it was cloudy and windy in the morning. Friendly beaches were nice, white sand again, as far as the eye could reach. Unfortunately we didn’t have the time to go for a walk along the beach, since we had to hit the road again to reach our next destination, Bay of Fires. 
Friendly Beaches
But before we headed to Bay of Fires, we wanted to check out the lighthouse that was also in the Freycinet National Park. The previous day at lunchtime people had spotted whales there. But when we got there, we could hardly even see the ocean because of the fog. :(
Bay of Fires is ranked as the world’s hottest holiday spot 2009 by Lonely Planet, so we had high expectations. Unfortunately the weather was quite chilly, but Bay of Fires was amazing! White sand and crystal clear, turquoise water, we couldn’t believe we were in Tasmania! Long white beaches one after another as far as the eye could see! And once again, it was just us on the beach and sometimes a random fisherman here or there. Definitely worth of its ranking in Lonely Planet. If only the weather had been better, it would have been perfect! I haven’t seen as nice a place anywhere in the Mediterranean or elsewhere during my travels. See, in the pics, they are all different beaches:

We drove all the way to the other side of the bay until the beaches FINALLY turned into rocks. After that we picked a beach where we would stay the night. It didn’t really matter; They were all long, gorgeous, full of white fine sand. Anthony wanted to go fishing on the beach. I grabbed a bottle of wine to keep me warm. Anthony’s been telling me what a great fisherman he is, but after he was using the previous night’s pasta and carrot as bait, I wasn’t so sure anymore… The wind was also really strong and the waves big, so I got a good laugh of his fishing attempts. We stayed fishing on the beach until it got dark and the wine bottle was empty.
