Fluted Cape Walk

Friday afternoon we took a 5k walk via Fluted Cape in South Bruny Island National Park.  Ben's camera battery was dead so we didn't get any pictures of the walk.  The above pictures are from the caravan park we stayed at on South Bruny Island.  It was great to hear the waves crashing as we slept in the campervan.  The walk was quite steep up to the top of Fluted Cape and we had great views of the coast on the way back down.  This was an area where whaling used to take place and we saw some of the ruins from that time and an echidna on the path.  Saturday we stopped in Hobart on our way back to Launceston and went to the Salamanca Market that takes place on Saturdays.  There were lots of artisans selling their goods, food stands, and fruit and vegetable stands.  We bought a pair of salt and pepper grinders made of reclaimed sassafras wood.

We learned a lot on this trip about traveling in a campervan, what is helpful to have while traveling, and what to expect from the caravan parks.  Now we are ready for our next trip which starts tomorrow!  We are flying to Melbourne Wednesday, have an appointment with immigration to switch our work visas to tourist visas on Thursday, and leave Melbourne in a campervan Friday for two weeks on the Great Ocean Road, ending up on Kangaroo Island.
