Port Levy to Pigeon Bay  ===>>>

This is where Louise tried to run us over the cliff, see how far down it is, I couldn’t even open my eyes to open the window to take the photo hence the glass reflection.

This is supposed to be a road where two cars can pass! I can’t believe how lucky we were, we drove 14 kms and didn’t see another soul, we were the only idiots.

But in the end it was worth it for the views, they were just fantastic.
