This blog is dedicated to Tasmania’s beaches and coastline, to sailing, kayaking and the sea, to footsteps in the sand, to cycling and the open road, to the island’s long summer days, its winter mists, its feisty winds and the wilds of the Southern Ocean, 42 degrees south beneath the aurora and the Southern Cross.

Although sailing was my obsession, these entries are mainly about walking and kayaking, the most intimate way to explore the meeting of sea and earth. In the end I didn’t get to explore nearly as much as I wanted to because of a move to the mainland. Here, the beaches are kilometres long and so a bicycle comes into its own, and my kayak is a great way to explore the waterways.
