From here, we walked across an isthmus, which is land surrounded by water on two sides that connects two parts of a peninsula (land that is surrounded by water on three sides)
Finally we got to another beach, Hazards Beach, and Lu went swimming in the ocean while I collected shells. We saw a dead fairy penquin, the smallest of penquins in the world, which was sad. It was great to hike to so many beaches. We hiked out of here and up over the dunes and mountains back to the lodge. Dan taught me a lot about the different animals here, and I hope we got to see a bush-tailed possum, a platypus, an echidna (we petted one at the zoo but I want to see one in the wild) a potaroo, a bandicoot, and spotted quoll, and a Tasmanian Devil, of course!
We had dinner looking out over the beach and so the biggest sting ray I have ever seen in my life - it was as big as my Dad! We could see it swimming in the shallow water - wild! After dinner, we went down to the beach and made castles and collected shells and watched the sunset. So far, Tasmania is amazing!
