heading to remarkable rocks

so after filling my face with cereal, toast and maybe a pancake (or two!) we head to remarkable rocks. another one of those roy walker moments obviously!

it was extremely windy (as you can see from the photos!) but the rocks were unreal. weird, but unreal! they had been formed by some weird lava bubbling up and, erm, cant remember the rest! im sure if you wanna know google will tell you!

down the road a bit to admirals arch where the waves were massive, i mean proper scary crashing waves! where the land stuck out the waves were coming from both sides then meeting in the middle. and there were lots of new zealand fur seals covering the rocks- more aaahhhss! still freezing though so the novelty was starting to wear off! apparently there are more nz seals in australia, its just some guy, a long time ago, happened to see 1 (obviously lost his way!) around nz and said "i name these seals new zealand seals"!

after a picnic in flinders chase national park (watched by 2 huge black scary crows!) we drove to western river cove which was another pretty beach.

remarkable eh?!
next to stokes bay which in summer is packed, but being nearly winter there was 1 campervan and the cafe was shut! to get to the beach you had to do some rock climbing and caving combined. it also meant getting totally drenched as the tide was in so, being the girl that i am (along with a few others!) decided to laugh at everyone else getting soaked and trying to dodge the water and then head back to chill, dry clothes still in tact!

on the way back to the ferry we stop in kingscote, the other main town on the island, to watch a bunch of starving hungry pelicans being fed by a local guy who's been doing it for years! the pelicans were rather large and scary and looked like they had stick on eyes!

after dreading the ferry journey home it went a LOT smoother and i live another day to tell the tale!
