On our last day, our departure day, the weather was absolutely beautiful, so we decided we needed to get back to the mountain to see it in all its glory. And from the photo's you can see we did. I would still love to have seen it covered with snow. I guess we will have to come back again some day. Doug and I do actually want to come back to see some more of Tassie, just not sure whether to come in the winter or summer.

|This is what we were walking into.|
|The camera is starting to play up here. To cold and wet for it.|
|That's Cradle Mountain up there|
|We may be smiling but we are actually very wet and very cold|

On our drive back to Devonport to catch the boat we stopped in at Tazmazia (8 different mazes) which we had promised Nate we would do for his birthday. I think he just mainly wanted the pancakes and ice cream that they advertised. He knew we would be in Tassie for his birthday and this is where he wanted to go. His second choice mind you. His first choice was another adventure park that had rope swinging from the trees (dare devil that he is) but he wasn't quite old enough.
Cousin Annie also joined us for Nate's birthday lunch, then guided us into Devonport. We had a last stop at Anvers Chocolate to taste the yummy chocolate, before boarding the boat.
