Cradle Mountain

After a few days of making the most of our proximity to all the sites of Launceston we got a hire car and set out to explore more of Tassie. First stop was Cradle Mountain via the lovely town of Deloraine. The air was icy and we had been promised snow and freshly cleared roads up the mountain. Our short drive to Deloraine gave Campbell the opportunity to find an op shop and a few new books to help him cope with the 'boring snow'. We also stumbled across a stack of CDs in the op shop and grabbed them to listen to in our battered but budget hire car. A bunch of 80's classics to introduce to the boys and we rocked on towards the mountains.
At Mole Creek we thought we should probably stop to find some Tassie Devils before continuing onwards and upwards.


With a glorious rainbow to welcome us we had snow at the very first look-out stop. The salubrious hire car served us well!

Further up the mountain we enjoyed the flurry of falling snow and another snowball fight.
Some of us had the good sense to stay dry and warm with his new books...

The trek back to Launceston took us via Devonport and a very chilly view across Bass Straight.

It was a full and refreshing day. We returned back to our lovely little house with rosy cheeks, cold toes and happy sighs. As well as some classic hits of the 80's stuck in our heads ;)
