Wednesday was cold, windy and wet just as Rachel's mum had predicted. We went to Wilsons Promontory, a national park in south Victoria. There are many different walking tracks throughout the park. We opted to climb to the top of Mount Oberon. Sion was apprehensive about climbing a mountain in such bad weather, but Rachel was insistent. So off we went armed with water, jam, peanut butter, and cheese sandwitches, determination and our big coats. We followed the track up through the trees to the final stage of our climb. Then we had to climb up the slippery rocks, being careful not to look down to the shark infested waters below. Luckily we knew a song that would get us through the tough times, Climb every mountain. Although Sion was reluctant to sing it, Rachel sung it loud enough for two.
Once we reached the top we realised we had been a little melodramatic and from the summit we could see that we had walked up a gravel track nearly all the way and there weren't any sharks below, infact there was not even any water. But we did have fantastic views of the park. It seemed just as we got to the top there was a gap in the clouds and we could see blue sky, white sandy beaches and a turquoise sea. It was a spectacular view but it didn't last long as another black cloud blocked out the view and we decided to head back down before it started to rain again.
