A trip to Leura



Just a quick hi, hi, hello! It's been two weeks and a bit since I last posted. Oops! I'm back at work and the time is already slipping away. Oh well.
Two weekends ago, Astin and I took a trip to the Blue Mountains. She had booked us into a lovely B&B to celebrate my birthday, which was such a thoughtful and amazing idea. We ate delicious food and decadent desserts, visited antique shops and scrumptious food stores and took numerous photos of the famous sights like the Three Sisters (those three rock formations for those not familiar) and Leura Cascades (the two natural waterfall images at the end).
We also visited the Everglades Historical House and Gardens. This 1930s garden is an exceptional example of landscaping work thanks to the elegant fusing of European design with Australian Natives. One of the most stand out aspects of the garden for me was the Glen, an artifically created waterfall. The look out over Jamison's Valley was spectacular too. Can't you just imagine it? 'Oh darling, just going to take a stroll to the lookout'. Not many of us can say that about our back gardens! The house itself was interesting - particularly because of the bathrooms. The bathrooms you say? Well, yes. These elegant, overstated and incredibly large rooms are unique in their design, with imported European tiles and a focus on pampering. The women's bathroom is amazing with it's giant tiled tub! We stopped for milkshakes in the tea room, and spent a lot of time being quite silly, lazing about and exploring here. I'm really tempted to go back again...
