Winglass Bay – Freycinet National Park

P1840204Ok, my images will not stand up to the thousands of amazing images taken from the air. THAT is how you will see Wineglass Bay’s glorious beauty.

A perfectly crescent shaped beach filled with royal blue waters edged with fine white sand. surrounded by hills – or knuckles as they say – it makes a perfect picture postcard image.

I asked how it got its name. #1 for the shape #2 in earlier years when whaling was at its height it was apparently filled with the whale’s blood – hence wine glass – red wine! *I’m not sure if this is the case, yet was told the same story by a few locals.

From the lookout…

It was about midday before I got underway, so I decided to only view it from the lookout and make an early 7am start the next day for the round trip.

Image #1  Trying to get one of those ummm ‘creative’ shots, I’d waited for about 10 small waves to come near my feet, then this one came along. I didn’t see the back part of the wave and yep got saturated.

Image #2 I don’t usually take pics of myself, or ask anyone. Yet the young girl who was looking after my bags while I went for a swim thought it would be a good idea!!! Oh well at least I have proof I swam in Wineglass Bay!!!
