What felt like day one (but, we suppose, is technically already day two) started off pretty cool. I got dressed in thermals and a woolen hat… but by mid-morning it was a lovely 20-something degrees. We decided to “do” Tassie anti-clockwise so we headed West through the seaside towns of Ulverstone, Burnie and Wynyard, to Stanley. Stanley is a fisherman’s village with a population of less than 500. Think old Victorian style, with Ye Olde Ice Cream Shoppe and many many cottages. It has an impressive rock formation backdrop called “The Nut” which we plan to climb tomorrow. It’s been VERY windy since we’ve arrived in Tassie… but the fact that it’s sunny makes that ok.
