Mt Wellington, Hotel SOHO,Part Two

The road to the top

Once we were at the top the view was spectacular.  The day was as clear a day as you could ask for.  So perfect.

There were little patches of snow and people were throwing snow balls and building snowmen.  A couple of kids were experiencing the snow for the first time. Screams of shock as snow dared to venture down the back of a hoodie.  I laughed.

The air was magic.  Clear, tasty but a little thinner than further down the hill. The rocks were very different all across the top of the mountain. We stayed a while and went to the lookouts and just marvelled at the land we could see from the top.  Just fabulous.

After driving back down the mountain we went to the pub I had seen on the upward journey called Hotel SOHO.

It was a warm and friendly pub and they had $10 meals.  We had roastpork, with crackling, apple sauce and wonderfully roasted vegetables.  A wonderful meal all round.

A lovely day in beautiful weather.
