We have spent another two nights at Edith Falls. It has given us a chance to slow down a but - well kind of, seeing there are some lovely walks to do here. Our days have consistent of a walk, swim, lunch, swim, rest, swim, dinner.
The first day we did the Edith Falls loop, a relatively easy walk (2.5km) up to the upper pool (swim). The only problem is the heat. It has been so very hot the past two days- we are drinking so much water and the kids are constantly hungry. This morning we departed for our walk at 8am. We walked to Sweetwater Pools - 8.5km return. It was a very pretty spot with small cascading waterfalls - so again more swimming.
Jacob was a bit hesitant to get in but I think that has more to do with him being a little sick. Angie and Caitlyn have been loving all the swimming and Angie has improved so much in the water.
Jacob was feeling pretty b*****ed so he got either a piggy back (on me) or shoulder ride (Joel) back to camp. Normally 8km is an ok distance but the heat really made it difficult. I am feeling it tonight and am sick of drinking so much water. It has finally cooled down a bit. Joel has just got back from taking some star pics and has now taken the girls to see the Barra that he spotted in the water.
