Dove Lake

Sunday 7th February 2016

 

After lunch we set off again, and first on the agenda was getting back down the track from Marion’s Lookout.  Going down was no easier than coming up, especially at the tricky bit with the chain, but with care and taking our time we arrived safely back at the signposts, where we headed off in the direction of the Wombat Pool.

Carefully does it.                                                                                                              Straight on for the Wombat Pool and Dove Lake.

No wombats but lovely colours in the water at Wombat Pool.

Dove Lake

 

We arrived at Dove Lake mid-afternoon, having had the most marvellous day.  We looked at the tourists taking selfies beside the lake before getting back into their cars (yes, driving to the lake is discouraged, but they still come) and thought about how much they had missed.  We signed our arrival in the register and were grateful to sink into a seat on the bus for the ride back to the Visitors’ Centre, where we treated ourselves to an ice cream before taking a slow walk back to the campsite.
