Hello everyone , hope this finds all well in your corner of the world.
Last week John and I enjoyed a mini break on beautiful Bruny Island to celebrate John’s birthday.
Bruny Island is a small island located off the south eastern coast of Tasmania . The locals refer to it as an island under an island (Tasmania) , under another island (Australia).
The view from the path to the lighthouse was stunning . It was a bit breezy at the top hence my wool beanie . We were very lucky with the weather , cool mornings and evenings but clear and sunny days. Keeping in mind that the next southern land mass is Antarctica wild conditions are often experienced.
Casual attire for the day, Moyuru striped pants paired with Pom top and jacket.
The Cape Bruny Lighthouse was built in 1836 and was the fourth lighthouse built in all of Australia and is the longest continuosly manned lighthouse.
Couldn’t resist taking a shot of this view with the jonquils in the foreground.
I was rather taken with this three dimensional globe of the world. Floating inside the globe is a sculpture within a sculpture , not easy to see here but it is a whale and a calf. The sculpture at Adventure Bay where whale pods are often sighted.
We stayed in this delightful stone cottage , Adventure Bay Holiday Retreat. If you look closely you can see several wallabies nibbling on the grass outside the cottage. It was such a peaceful spot.
The cottage was so comfortable and beautifully appointed. I would highly recommend Adventure Bay Retreat if ever you are in the area. I forgot to mention the cottage also has a spa.
One of the highlights was seeing this little one , a rare Albino wallaby named Shirley.

It had been many years since I had visited Bruny Island and I loved it and will return .
