Spain Bay

After two days at Payne Bay we decided to move to Spain Bay.

We went on a walk to the biggest aboriginal midden in Tasmania. To get there we had to walk through the button grass plains. They were really scratchy and muddy. Sometimes the mud was so deep that it came up way past my ankles.

When we got to the midden I was amazed. It was huge! We saw some pretty cool stuff in it including a seal tooth. The midden was at least 6000 years old and is where the Needwonnee aboriginal people from this area cooked and ate shellfish and other sea creatures over all those years. we were very fortunate to be able to visit their traditional lands.

After that we zoomed around the islands nearby.

You might by surprised that we were not the only boat with muddy hiking boots and gaiters out the back.
