Anyway Madi had met a little friend on the balcony after tea that she hoped to see at breakfast but he didn't show up. The night before we left her alone on the balcony intently playing her DS, when we heard her yell. A stripy tail possum like creature had climbed through the bars and was looking right at her! It was very funny! Our balcony was looking right onto the rushing Merced river.
Well back to the morning! We headed into Yosemite at 10 am. The scenery was spectacular. First stop was Bridal veil falls. Half way up the short walk Brodie realized that shorts were not a good choice
We then headed to the lower Yosemite Fall walk before going to the visitor centre where we got some information on more walks to do. After lunch we caught the free shuttle to the mirror lake walk/hike. This is about a 3 mile round trek which we finished as the day was ending.
We then hurried back to our car so we could go to Tunnel View for sunset. Although it was beautiful, the day was quite overcast and cool so the sunset wasn't as brilliant as we dreamed.
We went back to our 'home away from home' for some soup and toast for tea. The kitchen in the room was such a bonus, basic but all we needed. The kids went down for a swim in the indoor pool while Tom and I watched and sweated in the pool room! I then got to watch Grays Anatomy and Private Practice while lying in bed as Tom read. See, just like home!! I m hoping all this walking means this American food will have no effect on my dress size!! Fat chance!!!
