As we approached the flat headland we were better able to size-up the place, and noticed a couple black dots out in the water. In these parts with these conditions, it's a welcomed sight to see just a couple others around
Exhausted and salty, I was dropped off alone at the trail head and setup camp for the night. In the early pre-dawn the next morning I began the 3 day trek down the east side of the Tasman Peninsula. I could ramble on and on about hiking alone for days, through varied terrain of gum trees, lush green fern forest, and along the dizzying exposure of Australia's tallest vertical coastal cliffs, but instead Ill let the pictures and this sentence sum it up. In short - I hiked alone, camped alone, and spent all but a mere few minutes of passing just a couple fellow trekkers, in solitude. When solo bush camped in some places, lots of things go 'bump' in the night :) In the ever-busy world we inhabit, I consider it a refreshing change in perspective. Time away from it all, to let things catch up, and sink in more meaningfully.
