As it was Monday and a school day we spent the morning by the fires doing school work until lunchtime. Rosalee pulled together the last of our food and we had shoestring chips and chocolate piklets for lunch.

We wandered over to the visitor centre and caught the bus to Dove Lake, apparently the road had just reopened and there were a lot of walkers who had walked from the visitors centre to Dove Lake, so we had not wasted the morning with school work.

Rosalee was very happy to have clear skies and fresh air that existed in oodles, the sky was clear with only a few clouds in the sky. One day Rosalee and I will do the overland track to Lake St Clair.

We went for a walk around Dove Lake and up to Marions Lookout, I was stuck carrying all the coats, jumpers, cameras and Marcella which made going quite slow. I understand that Rosalee and the other kids got quite high into the mountain area, Marecella nad I got pretty high, but she kept picking up stones for mobile phones, or refusing to walk so it was SLOW.

After around 2 hours we made it back to Dove Lake car park and headed back on the bus to the Visitors Centre, it was a lovely day and so nice to come back to a fire, which was out. However, Elijah lighted his first fire in Tasmania, then went over to the other fireplace and quickly lit his second.
