Our daughter Sonya found a holiday house on the lake at Jindabyne for our whole family to stay for a week over New Year. Jindabyne is a mountain village in the Snowy Mountains. Lake Jindabyne is one of 16 dams built for the Snowy Mountain Scheme in the 50's to 70's.
Photo from the net. three bedrooms downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs and huge living area in the middle.
The view from the deck of the living area.
It didn't take long for the boys to be swimming in the lake. Even though it snows in winter it was 33°C/91°F while we were there.
I enjoyed a paddle in a kayak which belonged to the holiday house. Son in law, Bernie, kept a watch out for me .
Instead Carol said we know of a more sheltered shorter walk in Perisher Valley to Rainbow Lake. So off we went.
It was a pretty walk with little streams and wild flowers.
and artistic trees
After nearly 2k we were there. Sonya, Bernie, Banjo and Fox. David and Carol were up ahead.
"There's the lake Grandma!" calls Banjo.
