Weekly Photo Challenge – Thankful
There have been many times when I was thankful for my thick, warm, furry coat. This was never more so than the September day I went to the top of Mt Wellington in Tasmania. In Hobart the weather was mild with a maximum temperature of 17° but at the pinnacle it was blowing a gale and the temperature had plummeted to 1° – brrrrrr.
There were still patches of snow around the mountain top and occasionally flurries of snowflakes whirled around. It was so windy that I was blown over more than once! Thankfully a beaver’s fur is waterproof.
I was rewarded for my efforts with this amazing view of Hobart.
Don’t look down!
