Rugged up in our winter woollies, we found our seats and got comfy as the big cat's motors purred out of the bay and hugged the rugged coastline.
Plenty of birds to be seen and lots of Australian Fur Seals sitting on the rocky outcrops. This guy blended in so well with the rocks, we almost missed him. I gave him a 9/10 for camouflage skills.
The sandy coloured rocks changed as we headed south, becoming stained salmon pink, similar to the colours at Wilson's Prom in Victoria.
As we moved into a sheltered cove, the waves became calmer, with just a feathery touch from the wind causing a rippled effect on the water.
But conditions can change quickly on the high seas, and the sea was angry that day, my friends.
Ok, maybe not angry. Maybe just a little annoyed. A bit frustrated and teary.
We've all been there. Like when we spent 3 months in Covid-19 lockdown.
That's why there's places like Wineglass Bay. Places to look forward to when we can travel again. Places to tick off our bucket list. Places where our Aussie dollars can help small businesses, artists of all genres, farmers, country towns and tourism operators get back on their feet again.
Because the grey clouds blow away, the rough waves subside, the dark blue seas turn to turquoise green, the sun shines again and before you know it, you're having a lovely lunch on a boat in one of the most picturesque places on Earth.
You find yourself having a glass of wine in a magical setting like Wineglass Bay.Cheers to future travels, hopefully not too far in the future!
