|Saturday was washing and shopping. Then Noel and self went for a drive doing a loop, to Queenstown, on to Zeehan then back to Strahan. A very pretty drive through the country side. Zeehan is a tiny town, but very well looked after. Because the buildings are brick, they are not disintegrating like Queenstown. Noel's imagination was working overtime, without the sealed road, could imagine himself in a Wild West movie.
Ann and David had a restful day.
Sunday. We didn't intend moving today, however as we didn't book ahead, found we could only stay 3 nights as the park had a booking for an army bikie club. So on to Lake St Clare. On the map I put Derwent Bridge as the map wouldn't accept a lake.
We packed up in showers, and again careful driving up and down the ranges. After Queenstown we were driving along the side of very steep ranges. Thankfully we were on the inside of the road most of the way. By 10am the sun was starting to shine, and turned out to be the most warm and sunny day we have had in Tassie. It was 17deg but felt much warmer to us all.
On the way to Lake St Clare we could see snow on the mountain tops. The scenery is really beautiful, mountains covered with lush forests, and glimpses of beautiful lakes and rivers made more amazing with the blue sky and sunshine.
This is where David and Jeff will end their 6 day walk in the beginning of Dec.
After settling in amongst the gum trees went for short walks. For the first time in Tassie got hot and all took our jackets off. Ann was taking photos for the first time, which was lovely to see. Both her and David now need to get their strength back and there will be no stopping them.
