Tasmania, Part V

These are the last of the pictures from Tasmania. Coming soon: Pictures from Sydney!

Another Tasmanian Devil.

Two Devils, eating the carrion they had just been fed by the people who worked at the Wildlife Refuge.

Port Arthur: a complex where prisoners were processed and held upon their first entry to Australia in the 1800s.

Another view of the grounds at Port Arthur.

More of Port Arthur. We were standing in the parking lot at the entrance to the prison colony (actually, we walked over to a "lookout point") to take these pictures. We decided not to walk around the grounds because they wanted $24/person and we'd just paid $16 each to see the Tasmanian Devils. We were surprised at how much it cost. Also, it was getting dark and appeared that it would probably close soon.

Right as it was getting dark, we stopped at "Remarkable Cave" (but didn't get over to the cave itself because it was getting dark and seemed dangerous to go hiking) and walked on a boardwalk to this view of the ocean and cliffs. The second cliff off in the distance is possible to hike to (I believe the sign said 2.5 hours). John and I would like to go back there and do this hike some day and see the cave.

Just a few minutes later. It was getting dark very quickly at this time. It was about 5 p.m. This was a view towards the other side of the boardwalk. I love how deep the blues are in this picture.
