Drip Beach, Tasmania
Drip Beach, Tasmania (from eftel.com.au)
Our favourite beach (or should I say our dog's favourite beach) is Drip Beach, southern Tasmania, Australia.
Tasmania is mostly known for it's cold, unpredictable weather (for those not in the know, it's the island at the very southern tip of Australia) but when it turns into spring we are off to Drip Beach so our two dogs, Josh (border collie) and Lottie (baby Havanese) can swim to their doggy hearts are content.
Drip Beach is a very small, very secluded little beach in a protected bay. It has pure white sand, forest right up to the beach and very rarely is there more than us on that beach. It's not long or very well known but that is why we love it.
I remember one particularly gorgeous day I took our border collie to D.B. (pre-Lottie days), bikinis, suncream and a beach towel in my beach bag.
The water was SO still and calm and CLEAR! It was warm, sunny with a tiny breeze to keep me cool. I floated, swam lazily back and forth and had the most fantastic day.
Pretty good for a tiny local beach. I have no pics!
Reply by Nori: It sounded like such a wonderful beach, Kim, that I searched for a photo. I found only one on th whole Web, from eftel.com.au. It look so much like beaches in Nova Scotia, Canada (which are also freezing cold). I added it above for you to remember.
