Bay of Fire
Monday 29th November 2010 - I awoke this morning to clear blue skies and sunshine, so I packed up the bike and rode the half mile down to the backpackers hostel and checked in there. Then I took the road to Billabong Bay to see the Bay of Fire. This is so named because it is flanked with huge boulders which are covered in a sort of red algae which looks fiery red when the sun shines.
It was a beautiful ride and the ocean was crystal clear with gorgeous white sandy beaches. Another road took me round the other side of the bay where more fabulous beaches were. One even had a 30 minute walk to another beach so, in full motorcycle apparel, I decided to do this. Not the smartest of ideas – I was soaked in sweat by the time I got back to the bike!
Tomorrow I’ll continue south to Wine Glass Bay then on to Hobart.
