Fossils Bluff

Fossils Bluff is five minutes drive away from my home.

It is a magical and prehistoric place filled with fossils and magnificent cliffs. When the tide is out is especially dramatic. 

Thirty minutes walk along this beach at low tide you will find a fish trap made by the aboriginals thousands of years ago. Unfortunately this artifact of human existences is not even protected, a blight on our perceptions of what is important in historical building endeavors. The trap can only be viewed for thirty minutes at dead low tide and timing your walk is very important if you don't want to be engulfed in sea.

I went looking for memories along this coast while taking these pictures. 

At some point during my primary school years we spent a day at this beach and my friends and I made the most amazing rock fort. Long since washed away but I continued to hope to find the place in which we may have built it.

This is also the place that I went to when I 'wagged" a day of school with my friends when realising in grade 10 that I had never completed that task of youth.

Its not a swimming beach, far too many rocks, but I have swam here on the most gloriously warm watered day (a rarity in our state of Tasmania located within a rocks throw of Antarctica).

Such a lovely place, so under valued. I must spend more time here.
