A Taste of Eden

February 22, 2010 · 17 comments

Today’s adventure was a break from driving very far, a place called Eden looked like a good place to stop. With a population of 3,000 there wasn’t much to do or see, there was however a very nice beach.

I don’t think I need to add any more…

Now this is a catch!

We left to make a move towards Sydney to give our last day a short drive and arrived at Batehams Bay. Population 16,000 this place is a bit bigger then Eden and we arrived by a fishing area for the night. Whilst I was completely unsuccessful at fishing, the guys next to me lost a very large creature (almost 2M long) and managed to catch a sting ray and small shark (seen to the right), kudos to them!

Vinay – that’s actually the shark. Stingrays have thinner ‘stingers’ for a tail. It’s a very weird shark though. The flash from the camera really showed it’s nice colours. The stingray he caught was grey.

Marta – It was these guys 2nd day here too, they done well!

Aimee – This was not actually on a beach, but a fishing area around a town. There are some dangerous things about though!

Oooh, Eden! I remember visiting the killer whale museum there – must have been 10 years ago. Still there, I wonder?

I don’t remember seeing any Killer Whale Musuem there unfortunately, but that sounds pretty awesome!

Katie – Yes I thought the Eden name was adept and well suited. The Shark was impressive and I didn’t notice the colour until the flash from the camera brought it out.

I don’t see why not, it’s a catch in a public place where fishing is allowed.

Don’t like shark myself though, never tried stingray mind!

So that’s what I wanted to know – is taste good. Never tasted it either.

I tried shark in Malaysia, it tastes like it looks – big, grey, and from the sea.

Although the shark in the picture is a bit more colourful so maybe it doesn’t taste so grey.
