The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco. Wait, make that Tasmania

Bundled up for Summer in Tassie

Tasmania is one of those places in the world with perfect sandy beaches galore.  The only problem is that the water is too cold to swim and it's blowing a gale most days of the year.  After Bicheno we headed north to St. Helens, the gateway to the Bay of Fires.  We spent the next few days exploring the lovely beaches and getting our fill of local and very fresh seafood.  It was definitely refreshing to be away from the oppressive humidity of Queensland but 7 degrees Celsius is pretty cold to wake up to in the middle of summer.  Next post, off to Hobart.
