River Valley

A travel blog entry by expendabelles on Apr 03, 2015

We woke up slightly hungover from the boating experience and very sore from the walk, overall very tired and not in the mood to get up early and drag our rucksacks to base hostel to wait for our bus driver Ben to come and pick us up. Eventually he did turn up and we loaded up our rucksacks ready to set off to River Valley. Ben informed us that we would be doing a couple of walks again today ...

... and we had a very rocky, and at times jaw dropping, rock and roll to see the Carvings which were only just glimpsed amid the waves. Photographing them a challenge!! More interesting people watching on board. A family of Chinese origins - grandmother, aunt and parents and three children amused. Grandmother left to childmind which entailed letting children manhandle all the tea and coffee paraphernalia, Dad had his nose in an i pad most of the trip, aunt had ...

... the carvings, the snow capped mountains and lake. As we didn't have lunch and after over three hours of kayaking, we were starving. We went back to our accomodation, had a quick shower and changed before heading out for dinner. We went to the restaurant called Lake House where they serve your meal on hot stones and you cook it yourself. I had a salmon steak and Scott had a selection of seafood- mussels, prawns, scallops and fish. Delicious! ...
