Cradle Mountain Getaway

This weekend the kids were all staying at friends houses, so we thought we'd make the most of our kid-free time and went away for the weekend.

Silly us, didn't charge the DSLR camera so when it counted we had no decent camera! So we made do using our phone cameras. We didn't get any pics of our accommodation, however we stayed at a caravan park in a nice cosy cabin. The day we got there it was nice and sunny but we elected to not do any of the mountain walks until the next day. 
We took some gourmet food and cooked up a feast and enjoyed the night eating, drinking, and talking.

The next morning we woke up to the worst weather you could imagine! But not to miss out on the mountain walk we took a risk and got our parks pass and headed off on a 6klm walk hoping it wouldn't rain!

A view of the lake we are about to walk around and the weather!

But we didn't let the possibility of rain stop us, so off we set!

I can tell you we had 4 seasons in the one afternoon. It started raining, then sleeting, it hailed, it blew a gail and then the sun came out! LOL 

 Once we had got most of the way around the lake and experienced all sorts of conditions the weather was great. It was about now we wished the camera had a charged battery lol

 It was a nice relaxing weekend and we look forward to going back up there with the kids and doing some more walks...hopefully this time when it is sunny ;)
