Somewhere warm???

Not really lol

We went as far South as the road takes you. To the furthest that the road goes in the South of Tasmania, in fact within Australia.

To a place called Cockle Creek. It's somewhere we used to go camping when I was growing up. It's somewhere Dad used to go camping when he was growing up and now he and Mum, and another family, have a shack. So we spent 3 nights there with Dad. Just a hop, skip and jump to the beach or the creek. Nothing to do but Escape, which is what they named their shack.

and now I will leave you with some random photos I took. Sorry no Easter shots as there wasn't enough light to take photos, the lights only go on when the generator goes on which is only at night time.

Don't be fooled... It was cooooold when the sun wasn't shining, but that doesn't stop some people from wanting to get wet, over and over and over....

We took went back out the road to Hastings Cave and the Thermal Pool, so we could swim in some warmth.

Just to show how 'wonderful' the road is...

Dave is back to work tomorrow and the girls back to school next Tuesday. Glad of the break :)
