There is a very obvious and resounding theme of blue going on in the collection of images above this writing and that’s because we came across the most beautiful Sunday while in Tasmania.

I’d been prepared for nice weather, but not weather that good. The people of Coles Bay agreed. “You picked an awfully perfect day for sea kayaking”, they’d say to us. We perked up in our orange life vests and proudly agreed, “perfect weather indeed.”

We woke up early to stop by Jackman + McRoss for some fuel before heading off on a two and a half hour long drive from Battery Point to Freycinet National Park. It’s an easy, gorgeous, quick drive that no one should feel overwhelmed by.

We would hike the rocky trails of the National Park, have lunch with our toes in the sands of Wineglass Bay, admire a lone dolphin showing off for the crowd and meet a wallaby. Best of all, we would go late afternoon sea kayaking on the serene and clear blue water of Coles Bay as the sun came down.

Blue is quickly becoming my favorite color.

What we would do shortly after all the magical moments Freycinet National Park offered was race back to Hobart Airport after sunset to catch a 9:30pm flight home. Apparently, that’s when wallabys tend to turn into quick, bouncy zombies who follow loud sounds and head lights and gravitate toward cars.

I can proudly say no one was hurt in the journey back to the airport.

Phew! What a day.
