Elijah's Big Adventure Day 4

We packed a picnic, hopped in the car and travelled south from Hobart, through the Huon Valley to the Tahune Forest. There were some gorgeous views from the car. This photo was taken near Port Huon.

We were planning to do the Airwalk but discovered in Geeveston that it cost a little more than we were prepared to pay to look at trees. So instead, we had lunch at the Arve River Picnic Area and stopped at a few of the lookouts. The Arve River flows alongside the picnic area over rocks and under the Arve Forest Road. It was a lovely place to eat and we were the only ones there. It was easy to see why so much of Tassie is protected, as it is just so beautiful. It was pretty cold, though! The Daddy and I wished we had on an extra layer or beanie. Elijah, however, was toasty warm, especially when getting cuddles.

On the way back to Hobart, just south of the city, we stopped to take a picture of this snow capped mountain. I know we get to see snow on the mountains from Canberra, but they just don't look like this one: standing alone and shrouded in cloud.

Back in Hobart, Elijah spent some time with Daddy in the coin operated laundry as Daddy studied and washed nappies and I went for a walk. The nappies unfortunately, didn't dry well enough, so Daddy ended up finding another laundry to dry them after dinner.
