Aussie Day 13: Cradle Mountain, Devonport, Tasmania
After the night of horror from the night pest, something we still have no idea what it is, looks like a racoon, trying to enter our cosy cabins as the cooking we made attracted them. They even had the audacity to open the doors on their own.
And no, these little creatures aren’t the rascals that attacked us the night before.. These are cute little animals called Pademelons.. They are really cute, but really shy.. Any step near them and they hop 10 steps back… But somehow, I have some affinity with animals.. They get along with me very well.. Well, when Yi Guang walked over, the Pademelons ran away… Poor Chuiyi was traumatized by these little beings..
We proceeded to our walk around Cradle mountain, but it was just too cold for us… Brrr….
Some of the guys wanted to take the 5km walk on the mountain trail.. The rest of us too scared of the cold to do so simply backed away to the cafe to chill out.. :)
After that, it was driving down the mountain to devonport to catch the spirit of Tasmania to head for Melbourne..
Dave and I watched Marley and Me on the ship.. The ship was really rocking badly though… Some of the aero folks got seasick…
