Russell falls post , take 2.
I was not happy when with my finger rapidly descending upon the publish button the iPad throws a tanty and there goes my post. Poof. Off into the never never, never to be recovered. And after all that it had taken me all day to get the time to actually write it. Was so not happy, I didn’t even think to just add a picture of our trip.
Route: Middleton to Mt Field via Bridgewater
Distance and time: 120km and 2.5 hrs. Return trip left 1pm arrive home 6pm.
Stops: Snug to pick up eldest’s girlfriend, Bridgewater for a snack breakfast and coffee, 30 mins.
We were after a family day trip before hubby headed back to work for two weeks, but didn’t want to go too far. The bike had to be returned so we took it for one last squirt giving everyone a last ride.
Russell Falls are one of our states most photographed and iconic places to visit. Maybe we’re a little old and jaded now, we didn’t find as much inspiration as we thought is time around. The kids loved it took lots of their own photos. It seems iPods and phones are handy for something other than the obvious.
A bit of a surprise was the dinosaur we saw on the track..
I was looking forward to walk from the last falls that winds around the river to the camping ground. Oh no. Not to be, they’ve changed everything, so we had to walk up a maintain of stairs, follow the track along the top of the hill and then wind back down to the car park. Not very happy, or fit.
Lunch was had in a hut right next to river, she we and plenty of time to relax. No eating and then rushing off.
The bike was washed and returned to its owners. I took eldest to work and returned to pick up biker people.
Dropping off the girlfriend we finally arrived home to a very happy dog 11 hours after we left home.
A lovely if tiring day out.

Have a great week
