    Smell the Roses

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Aug 2, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: One of the pleasures of biking around the island was the wonderful aromas coming from the many wild plants that seem to be growing everywhere.

    My favourite is the Wild Rose. Not only is it very pretty, but it provides a really nice smell as you bike on by! It is a type of plant that also grows near the beaches, helping to stabilize the sand dunes.

    This clump of Wild Roses was beside the highway out to Long Eddy Point.

    Swallow Tail Lighthouse

    Favorite thing: Swallowtail Lighthouse, originally built in 1860, is a 16 m (50 ft) tall octagonal wooden building. It was later automated, allowing removal of the staff in 1986.

    The former lighthouse keeper's house is now a Bed & Breakfast establishment.

    A Beautiful Harbour Scene

    Favorite thing: We wound down our trip with a beer at Galloways Bar in North Head, and this is the view we had out over some wild flowers growing along the sandy beach that edges this part of the harbour.
