Welcome to my blog.

On these pages you will find snippets from my life in Tasmania, and information about the best things to visit, see, and do, on the island.

Coastal walk | Seven Mile Beach

There's a short walk that I love to do on weekends. It's the walk through the Single Hill Coastal Reserve, which runs from Seven Mile Beach (the Seven Mile Beach Road end), across the headland, and through to Roches Beach. You could also elect to go the other direction (wink wink bad dad joke).  

I took a stroll here for my birthday the other day with my gorgeous red headed clan (see images below, I'm not sure why so many of my favourites have the same colour hair)  and had a picnic overlooking the sea. The walk, which was pretty awesome to start with, has been made even better with recent track upgrades - steps onto Seven Mile Beach (good work Clarence City Council), freshly graveled tracks, and beautiful (maybe sexy?) stone culverts and drainage to ensure your feet stay dry. If someone had told me last month that I would be describing drainage as 'beautiful' I would have replied with "don't be stupid". 

An added bonus on this walk is that Klaus gets to come along and amble off-lead (for the time being. Unfortunately Clarence City Council is planning to change that - please don't!!!). The views of the ocean from the walk are spectacular and sometimes, when the Seven Mile Beach surf wave is happening, you can spot people hanging ten (yup, I said that. Could that phrase sound any dorkier?).  

I'm keeping this nice and brief and I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Note how much the light changes over the course of the day! Who says Tasmanian winters are awful? Incidentally the photos for my Dish Pig Studio post were also taken at Seven Mile Beach. See them here

Have you ever done this walk? I'd love to know what you think
