It feels like I’ve just walked into the beer fridge at Dan Murphys, but that sudden temperature drop didn’t take my breath away nearly as much as the jaw dropping scenery that Tasmania has presented to us within the first week of our journey through the apple isle.
It feels like we have come to a different country!! It has already captivated us and inspired our exploring hearts a little further.
It’s our first visit to Tassie and on our second day Sherrin and our groms got to experience snow for the first time. I had no expectations of seeing snow; After all it’s half way through October!! But apparently it’s not uncommon to get it on the mountaintops.
We raced up to Cradle Mountain from Devonport and walked into minus 2 degrees at 12 noon!! Coming out of a winter mostly spent in Northern Queensland it was a shock to the system, but the challenging temperature was distant second to what we had to explore down the many walking tracks of this magnificent national park.
The next week we are heading down to Hobart to see what that has going on…. Maybe find some waves??
