We couldn’t decide what to do for Christmas this year so we decided not to do anything. Then, on Christmas Eve, we had a rethink and booked lunch at Cradle Mountain Hotel. We took Cooper on the first of many relaxing summer drives.
We arrived in time to enjoy a pre-lunch beverage
and, as I hadn’t been to this hotel before, I had a little look around. The bar and lounge area were very comfortable
and having the keg room on show was a novel idea.
Beyond the Christmas tree,
the dining room and buffets were presented beautifully.
The barbecue area was set and the chef had entered into the spirit of things.
We found a comfy spot
with a fabulous view
to finish our drinks before being seated for lunch.
The menu was extensive and delicious.
Of course, we ate too much and returned to our place on the veranda to digest the food and the surroundings.
We returned home, hot & weary, for the obligatory Christmas Day nap. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and wish you a safe, happy & healthy 2017.
