April 5 Binalong Bay (Day 191)

We had a beautiful sunrise, with a pair of black swans touching down on the lagoon where yesterday there was a canoe!

Unfortunately the sun couldn’t burn away the clouds and rain was threatening so we packed up to find better weather! Another day, another beach! Heading further north up the East Coast we stopped at St. Helens on Georges Bay for supplies and to replenish water, then drove around Grants Lagoon and to the beaches along Binalong Bay. Another free site courtesy of the Tasmania Conservation Department, this one with a ‘hybrid’ toilet that uses a micro-flush system. The sites were large and separated and we had a peek-a-boo view of the water!

Jeanneret Beach, a tiny but gorgeous beach with sugar-white sand, clear baby-blue water and a nice slope for swimming!

The orange tinted rocks border the beach and are great for sunbathing and tide watching!

Watching the waves flow over the seaweed was mesmerizing.

This rocky headland separates this beach from the larger Swimcart beach that has a long camping area spread along it filled with campers.

Swimcart beach has rougher waters and a definite undertow, no swimming here!

We walked along Swimcart beach, and it was such a nice day, in the 70’s, we headed back to Jeanneret Beach and took a dip in the cool sea water!
