After feeding Mattias we went for our breakfast that was included in our accommodation rate. The breakfast was so good that it compares to the breakfast we had in Kuala Lumpur at a 5 star hotel. It was really awesome and you could have anything you wanted from all sorts of cereals, to cooked breakfasts and things like pastries and nuts.
After the breakfast we went for a drive to the Dove Lake (at the base of Cradle Mountain). At the lodge it was quite warm and Roxy against her better judgement decided not to take her jacket with her. As soon as we arrived there - that proved to be a BIG mistake as the cold wind was blowing from everywhere.
She did well to act "tough" and managed to survive. I on the other hand had Mattie on the sling and he was my heater. :-)
The funny thing is that Mattias usually doesn't like to be constrained by the sling but when he felt the wind he was more than happy to be inside my jacket and stayed there for the whole duration of our walk and he slept.
After our walk we came back to the lodge and had a good afternoon nap. Hmmm it felt great.
We went to the bistro style food place at the main building to get some dinner where we met some interesting people. Some were from north Queensland some from Melbourne and others we don't know from where they come from.
Once we finished the dinner we hired Monopoly to play in our cabin.
Due to Monopoly games and packing we went to bed close to midnight.
