Amazing things can happen in #tasmania's wilderness. Here's a little story for you!
This is Tasmania's wild south west, Mt Beattie to be precise, near Melaleuca, where your only access is to walk in for a week from the nearest road, fly in a tiny plane for 50 minutes from Hobart or come by boat.
I visited a little while ago with the lovely Alice from @tailoredtasmania, on a trip with @paraviontas. Alice was happy to clamber up on these rocks for my photo, at my request 😊. Unfortunately, upon returning to sea level we realised her sunglasses were nowhere to be found. Last they were seen was when she scrambled up these rocks for me - oops 🙄. Fast forward a month, and by chance I returned to the wilds with @itsworthashot and @trex.photography for an insta-trip I was leading, and was in a position to do this walk again. I told the guys the story and they agreed to help look for the sunglasses.
In hindsight, it was a silly request - a month of crazy south west Tassie weather had thrashed the mountain since the first trip!
So we had a look around, under bushes, between rocks, in mud...and then, incredibly, we found... a sock! Yeah. Just one. Quite a muddy one too 😂. Scavenging around a little more we actually did, to my utter amazement, find the glasses. Intact and unscratched! We couldn't believe it!
Eventually I caught up with Alice back in Hobart, and presented her with her long-lost eyewear, to her equal amazement!
I believe this was a good reminder that when a problem seems too much, or there's no solution to be found, sometimes all it might take is a fresh pair of eyes to show you what you couldn't see 👍🏻.
