An overnighter in Hanmer on our way home was just what we needed to wrap up our holiday. Adventure AND relaxation, all within 24 hours.
An adventure we’ve waited YEARS to be in a position to actually do – finally on the cards!
Away with work, waking on a clear, crisp, autumn morning. I had time for a walk, and it was worth it – so many beautiful moments in the city.
The downside of camping in Autumn is that you have limited daylight hours.
We had a choice – first morning sun, or last afternoon sun – for our tent site. We opted for last afternoon sun. Which meant the inside of our tent was still cold (and the outside still damp), until the sun arrived around 11:30am. However, we also kept the sunshine until after 4pm. Other than one foggy morning and one breezy evening, we had still, calm, clear weather for 4 straight days.
36 hours to myself, to do what I wanted. And it rained. I still loved it!
How do you turn down an offer of a photography road trip with an awesome photographer for next to no cost? You dont! This was an awesome, if long, adventure I will never forget.
