(Part1, 7 photos) – Eight of us spent the long weekend at Cradle Mountain, with weather much clearer than our foggy visit last September, we hiked and explored the area – and this time, saw the rugged peaks!
We stayed in the quaint, rustic at Highland Cottages where breakfast was watched over by the local long-beaked Currawong and a few of his mates, staring through the window eagerly looking for scraps.
After breakfast and a bus-ride, we set off for a walk around Dove Lake with glimpses of sunshine through cloud and a light breeze at our backs. Anti-clockwise, first stop, the infamous and much photographed boat-shed.
On and on …
Calmer waters greeted us as we moved further around the lake.
Though I kept an eye out for fungi the whole trip, I spotted very little, but this tiny red one growing over lichen beside the track caught my eye.
We headed onward and upward, and closer the Cradle Mountain.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the view so far, visit again to see where the path leads us …
