So Ray showed us around Circular Harbour and pointed out places of interest , harbour bridge, the opera house, Nicloe Kidmans apartment! It was a wicked morning. In the afternoon we took a ferry ride across to Manly and chilled out on the beach before heading back to Sydney.
Tuesday morning we picked up the Camper!!! Yeah!! Our new home for the next month - hope we don't get cabin fever! Its pretty simple but we think it will do the trick! We drove out to the blue mountains and had a look around the Three sisters rock formation, we then started what was meant to be a simple trip to a camping spot in the National park . . . . . 4 hours later we're still looking! The road signs and maps here are rubbish! But we did get to see alot of the country side and we met a fantastic woman who could talk the hind legs off a . . . kangaroo!! 15minutes after asking directions we were still non the wiser about where we were going but we did know what to do if we found a snake , and where the austrlian camels can be found!
We found a camp site but it was over priced and the woman was so rude - compare her to Maggy Thatcher on a bad day running a camp site! So we left, she thanked us for disturbing her so Rachel said she was most welcome!
We decided the best bet was to fend for ourselves in this big ole country and pulled up under a tree on a side road, $30 richer!! Bonus!
Wednesday we went on a scenic railway into a vally and had a walk around some old mines and wondered around the bush before driving back into Sydney and staying in a campsite - it wasn't nearly as much fun! : )
Today we have mostly been sitting on BONDI BEACH BABY!!!!!! It has been such a gorgeous day - not a cloud in the sky! The sands are so white and the waves are MAHUSIVE!! We hired body boards, a new experience for Rachel, and spent the next hour trying to drown ourselves. Rachel nearly succeded when she got swallowed by a huge wave she was trying to take on! It clearly won - and took her dignity! (.)(.)
We're now about to start the big drive North! We'll keep you posted as and when!
Lots of love Rachel and Ed
