ABC Wednesday, S for Sisters Beach

Sisters Beach is a small town located in the north of Tasmania within fifteen minutes of Wynyard, in Tasmania's North West. It is located within the Rocky Cape National Park.
It has a beach of white sand, approximately three kilometres in length. A unique aspect of Sisters Beach is the prevalence of giant Banksia serrata. It is the only place in Tasmania where they occur.

We thank Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC, and we must thank Roger too for the weekly job to find  ten bloggers for each of the ABC Team members  to visit and to read their posts. For more interesting ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar . This week we are looking for words beginning with S.


It doesn't often happen that these two sisters meet, let alone on Sisters Beach in Tasmania.

As the weather here is so dismal Wil I can't help wishing I was stretched out on that glorious beach.

Good to see the girls were able to get together for a visit. I'm assuming the little person in your header is the latest Grandchild. Cute little fella.

Beautiful blue eyes, again, I'm assuming it's a girl? Or am I wrong?
