Day 313: Hanmer Springs

Today is the day we intend to spend all day sitting in hot thermal waters of Hanmer Springs pools.  It turns out to also be the first rainy day for quite a while.  For some reason, we find this disconcerting, as if we weren't planning to get wet anyway.  The pools turned out to be fabulous, even in the rain.  I had suspected the brochure of magnifying the size of the complex, but it really didn't.  There are still some parts I haven't been in, because I can't be bothered to walk that far in the rain.  I spent most of my time between the super hot hexagonal pools and the cool swimming pool where you can do laps.  Mike and Antonia bought a pass for the slides which they say are good, and Mike enjoyed the sulphur baths, though they irritated my skin.

Eventually we were starving so we went to the deli across the road where Antonia and I shared the breakfast called The Heartstopper, while Mike ate a roasted vegetable salad full of vitamins.  We sat around and worked on our computers until we felt like returning to our cabins for a nap.  After a quick supper, we were back in the pools for another go at getting warm and wet. I actually felt like I was on holiday!
