Nice photos, looks like you guys had fun!  Of course, whilst you kids were splashing about in the paddling pool, us real men (and woman) threw in a couple of hills to work up an appetite ;)  Unfortunately my GPS batteries died (been trying out a GPS app) on the way back down, so the return leg (blue) stops short of the Trassey Track.  Note to self, iPhone battery will only last around 4 hours when using GPS!

Was an awesome trip, must say I'm really enjoying the Friday/Saturday trips a lot better as it gives you a day to recover before work :)  Good to catch up with you all again!
