... them in the photo. A bit difficult to see as they are well camouflaged. My camera photos are clearer and Terry's will be even better. We had to do a fair bit of walking and Terry's knee was pretty good.I could have stayed just looking out to sea all day but we needed to move on. Took a road down to Hanson Bay but there was no picnic spot so we ended up just off the road to have lunch.Terry really wanted to see the Marron place ...
Another full day. Early bus to catch the 9am ferry to the Island with tour pick up on the Island. A 20 seater bus full of all ages, and nationalities; bigger than any tour we've done previously. First we stop at Rob's shearing shed to see a demonstration of sheep dogs (Australian celtics) working, shearing and hear Rob tell his family's story. They have been on the farm for 138 years with Rob being 4th generation and his son and daughter will be continuing on the farm. ...

They had photos from 1912 and today of the same spot allowing you to see the changes. In 2003 a fellow fell off the rocks into the water, two people from a tour group tried to aid the person and while doing that were swept into the water by an unexpected wave. The rescuers both died while the first man survived - how is that fair?

As we were hanging out a pod of about 7 dolphins swam by as we watched. A few even did some jumps - spinnaker Dolphins maybe? Always cool to see wil dolphins, it reminded Christine and I of swimming with wild dolphins in a small cove on The Big Island of Hawaii.
We watched a bit of the Cricket World Cup Final today before ...
... wonderful name of Backstairs Passage. You can see the mainland from Penneshaw where the ferry arrives on the island after a 45 minute trip. I was told that the separation is greater than it looks because the water is treacherous, Apparently you don't just zoom over in your runabout to buy the newspaper like Gary does to Chemanius from Thetis Island. The return ferry trip for a car and two passengers costs $600. Even a sheep costs $12.00 to ship off ...
