Snowy Cradle Mountain

Friday, August 30, 2013

Back in July we had a couple of days off and decided to head to cradle mountain. We thought we would ask nana and papa if they wanted to come too.

Papa drove until the Mt. Roland lookout and then we stopped and i took over.

This is one of my favourite photos that i have ever taken... Nana & Papa at the Mt. Roland lookout.

Mt. Roland.

Then we headed up to Cradle Mountain. It was so beautiful all the way up, covered in snow everywhere. I wanted to be snapping photos the whole time, but i was the driver. When we got up the lady said it would be better to take the bus up because it was so slippery with all the ice and snow. We finally got a bus (they didn't have many running), and were so awestruck by the views. It is SO pretty up there, especially covered in snow!
Apparently this photo i took was in the newspaper last week, so if anyone still has a copy of the examiner i would love to see it, not sure what day it was.

Love this photo below :)

Because of all the snow it was super slippery to walk around, so Gavin and i headed around Dove Lake to the boat house, while nana and papa stayed at the front of the lake.

We made it to the boat house and weren't keen on going any further - it took ages trying to go slowly through the ice. Next time we need to take better shoes. It was so pretty everywhere though!

Love this photo as well :)

We caught the bus back and planned to check out the falls just down the road, but because we waited so long for the bus, it was too dark by the time we got there. We headed through Sheffield on the way home to check out all the murals as Gavin had never been there before. We went into a second hand shop and papa found a pin he has been searching for for years. It was from the regiment he was in during the war. I wish i grabbed a photo of him with it, but i forgot and it was pretty much dark.

We had such a fun day with nana and papa, it was such a mild day, not really cold at all and we didn't really need coats.. It was nice to spend some time with them and go somewhere new. I hope we can do some more trips soon. Love you guys. xx
