... The views were amazing. Saw the red crater and the emerald lakes. The next part was going down on the slippy slidey ash stuff. I only fell over twice! Saved one by doing a deep squat which I thought broke my legs. So much fun :S We then ended up in the clouds so we powered through. It was a lovely walk but 20 k is a few too many.

Now the children, after their customary bubblebath, are soundly asleep. Elise has descended from our tower and crossed the road to the hot salt water pools in hopes of easing her poor, sore post-race leg muscles. Joey has retreated to his warm and cosy bed, and I will soon go to mine. The wind is still roaring furiously outside on this exposed coast, but will hopefully blow the rain away by morning.
