FRIDAY 26 NOVEMBER WHITE BEACH
We did the shopping for the coming week. in Nubeena. We did not need much. The range at the store is rather basic, but adequate.
We collected our mail, which contained some bills, a letter from my brother – nice to receive – and a notice about N’s estate. Seems John will inherit more than he thought – he will certainly have no problems buying a new lathe and a big TV set, with it, when we are home again.
Today was rather cool and windy.
After lunch, we decided to investigate Roaring Beach – the next one to the west of here. The Roaring Beach Road starts at Nubeena, soon becomes unsealed, and sort of follows the coast around, for a little way, then takes a winding, up and down, course through farm land and forest, for nearly 30kms. It was an interesting drive on the narrow road. There are some very isolated homes and farms out along that road.
We parked at the end of the road, where there were sand dunes and a path to the beach. At the back of the beach was a creek lagoon, caused by the creek mouth being blocked by a sandbar. We had to walk across the creek on a narrow plank.
We found Roaring Beach a nice little one, somewhat marred by a dead seal on the rocks at one end.
Returned to the van, then went out to get fish and chips for tea, in Nubeena. I found them rather greasy, but John really enjoyed his, including a “proper” potato cake – not easy to find in Tassie!
