Our friend Fergus took us to the Blue Mountains this weekend, which are a couple hours to the west of Sydney. Near his house was a fantastic little walk:
After the hike, we visited Wentworth Village for lunch
Then we drove to Katoomba to see the famous Three Sisters:
We spent the night in Blackheath with Fergus’ dad, Nick. Had a fantastic lamb roast and then learned a new card game called “500.” We managed to play for 4-5 hours straight…
In the morning we woke to kookaburra laughter!
Then we headed out to a lookout called Govett’s Leap:
Our last stop in the Blue Mountains was the world’s steepest railway! (52°)
Once at the bottom, we walked around the the valley floor amongst ancient trees:
Then we had to say goodbye to the brisk mountain air and return to the city.
Only 3 more days in Sydney!
