Beaut Mountains and Great Hosts
We had been told by just about everyone who worked, lived or visited Sydney that we must go to the blue mountains. We said bye to Amanda and co for a couple of days and took Monica for a drive.
Th Blue Mountains, what can I say? Not for the first time and I am sure not the last time that scenery has stumped me with the problem of how to put something so spectacular into words. I am certain there is someone out there with the skills to do so but I am not that person. You'll have to admire the pictures, use your imagination or (the better option) visit them yourself. It's only the other side of our planet! If you've already been you will know what I mean. Rob and Amanda-sort it out!! We walked around some of the Blue mountain national park and took a lot of pictures with wide open mouths trying to take in the gorgeous scenes.
I was lucky enough to go to uni with another lovely girl (Hannah) who has moved to Australia and even though her home was a little out of the way we knew we had made a great choice to see her. When we arrived her smiley face was there to greet us along with her charming boyfriend (Jack) and most importantly a platter of cheese, dips and crackers. This was enough for me but James's head nearly exploded with sheer delight as we were told we were going to enjoy these treats with some cold beers and ciders by the lake on a GOLF COURSE. And it goes without saying that our mode of transport was a golf buggy! We watched the sun go down by the lake and jumped back on to the buggy to go up to the amazing house. The front room was more like a dance studio and I obviously demonstrated this with a few of my moves. We had a room to ourselves with a delightfully comfortable bed. Jack cooked us pizza and pasta and we chatted around the dinner table until early in the morning as if we had all be friends for years. The vast quantities of alcohol probably helped and the fact we all have a passion for travel, and two of the party a passion for golf!
