This morning we got up and tried to work out what to do before returning the hire car and checking in to the airport.

Finally we decided.  We went to the harbour and found a harbour cruise to do. However, it was a couple of hours before the cruise left so although Mt Wellington was covered in cloud, we decided to go up there again just to see the difference from when we were up there yesterday.

It was much colder than yesterday, there was snow around as there was yesterday but the ice on the trees had melted. There was no views because the cloud cover was so thick. However it was what we expected but we wanted to see how different it would look. We then went to the cafe that Elke had taken us to yesterday. We thought that a late breakfast/early lunch might be a good idea. We ended up sitting at one end of a table for 6 as the cafe was busy.

People were even reserving tables!

Then it was time to head back to the harbour for our cruise.  It was only a one and a quarter hour cruise but that was just right for us. We saw the river from a slightly different aspect than yesterday. Apparently they normally get up to 100 people onboard but this morning there was only 11 I think.  Lots of room to move.  However, other than the one lady that sat up on the deck, I think I was the only person that did go out side even it was for a short time. I had to go up to the deck but it was so cold I didn't stay for long.

We got back to the harbour and had to get straight back into the car and head for the airport. We dropped off the hire car and went to check in. Then waited for our flight. The time passed quite quickly and before we knew it we were back in Adelaide.
