Moulting Lagoon (Coles Bay)

Having finally met up with our friends Duncan and Lorraine, we spent the day hearing about their travels and being treated to a smorgasbord of Duncan’s seafood catches (flat head, mussels and calamari) and Lorraine’s camp oven cooking.

In the late afternoon the skies darkened and it absolutely poured with rain. The forecast was for 40mm and I think we had at least that if not more. Prior to us arriving Duncan and Lorraine had stretched a tarpaulin over the campsite they had reserved for us. This turned out to be a very welcome and most appropriate gesture.  They also had a tarp stretched over their campfire, which allowed us to comfortably sit out the storm and cook a marvellous dinner.

Zoom into the map and use the 'Satellite' layer to see our new location.

This sign on the door of the Freycinet National Park Visitor Centre puzzled us. Have we not been welcome elsewhere?
