Recreation was the name of the game after Northern Tasmanians were treated to a glimpse of summer weather.
Beach-goers flocked to Bridport to soak in the sun's rays, and test their toes in the water or relax on their boats.
The warmer weather is a reprieve from the bite of the La Nina, which made its presence known last month.
Data from the Bureau of Meteorology showed Tasmania experienced its wettest October since 2016.

BOM climatologist Andrew Marshall said while temperatures remained close to average, October experienced more rainfall.
"The rainfall for the month [of October] was 20 per cent higher than in previous months," Mr Marshall said.
Notable records reached during October included 103mm recorded at Ross, which was the wettest October on record for the town.
The Launceston Airport also recorded double the long-term average of rainfall during October.
Mr Marshall said the higher instances of rainfall was because of the grip of the La Nina, which was declared in September.
He said La Nina was expected to last until at least the end of the summer and would be felt through more rain events.
However, the summer weather experienced over the long weekend showed no sign of La Nina, with families flocking to spend time in the sun and spent time together.
Taneesha Torlach, of Launceston, travelled to Bridport with her family for one of their first beach days of the season.

"We were here a few weeks ago and we really loved it, so instead of heading out to some of the other beaches, like Greens Beach, we decided to come here," she said.
She said the family wanted to take advantage of the warm weather and decided to have a family outing for the holiday.
"We have brought some food, so we're probably going to hang out here for the day," she said.
Mrs Torlach said it was the weather and the holiday that made them decide to make the road trip to Bridport.
Scottsdale residents Scott and Joyce Simon said they decided to come to Bridport to give their daughter and her friend some time to enjoy the outdoors.
"It was the last day of the long weekend so we thought it would be a good day to get out," Mr Simon said.
He said they brought their dog, Milly, along for the ride, and would head to Adam's Beach later in the day because it was dog-friendly.
Mr Marshall said the outlook for the next three months would include higher rainfall, due to La Nina, but the temperatures were forecast to be above average for most of Tasmania.
BOM released the October statistics on Monday.
