Over the weekend Cliare and I headed up to Coles Bay and decided to the the Sea Level Traverse a 6km Walk/Climb/Swim from Sleepy Bay to Wineglass Bay. Took us 8 hours and it was an awesome adventure. Pretty easy most of the way. The slabs were pretty wet though so we ended up doing more swimming than i had imagined and swimming for me is doggy paddle so the swims were exhausting for me =/ I think we ended up doing around 6 swims in total some 10 meters some 50 meters. It was actually easier to traverse on the kelp roots at the base of the cliff where possible which was really fun when it got to hard you just jump in and swim for the closest slab, spit up whatever sea water i had swallowed and try and recover for the next swim 🙂 When we made it so Wineglass bay John and Anna where waiting there with some Gin and Munchies which was much appreciated 🙂 The next day we were pretty tired so we did nothing 🙂 A great weekend 🙂
