More on our travels

We have just spent 2 days in the Blue Mountains with Graham's cousins. What a lovely place. Both days it was drizzling rain and very cloudy so we couldn't see much further than a few metres away. The first day we thought we would go to see the Jenolan caves since it was wet and cloudy outside. We went to the Orient cave.
 Red my little teddy came down in the caves with us. Can you see him sitting on the rail?
 This was a magnificent group of stalactite's in the cave. below is looking from the car to the door into the tunnel as a short cut to the cave.
Here is the lookout to Wentworth falls on the first day. Not much to see apart from clouds.
 then today this is the view. much better, and we could even see the falls.
 Wentworth Falls
Above is the Leura Cascades. A very pretty place. 
 We met up with another cousin Lynne yesterday and she came site seeing with us which was lovely. we decided to go on the railway down to the bottom of the valley even though it was wet and misty. It is so amazing down in the rainforest. We then got the cable car back up after walking around the board walk in the rain. I had my umbrella but the others didn't. It was worth it though.




above is the steepest railway that we went down the valley in and then me feeding the parrots.
 we then walked the boardwalk in the rain. this is Graham with Lynne.
the rain forest is fantastic.
Today we travelled to Canberra to spend the weekend with Graham's brother Russell and Cherith. We took all day to drive down stopping in a few places on the way. One of the places was Berrima which is a lovely little town with lots of crafty places. Below Red is resting outside one of the shops.
that's all for now. I have hundreds of photos but that is the beauty of digital photo's isn't it?

I love Jenolan Caves. My first memory was from when I was about 5 years old. I have been meaning to take my girls there when we go south, but it hasn't happened yet!

Berrima is a beautiful little town - although a bit too cold for my liking!

You are taking me on a trip down memory lane - thanks.

Cheers
Sonia

Your trip sounds fantastic Andrea! Pity that we couldn't give you some nicer weather in Canberra so you can look around easier! Hope you have a great time here, there's so many wonderful things to see and do!!!

I can't remember the last time I went to Jenolan Caves ... probably about 20 years ago now! Looks like you had a FAB time! Berrima is only about 45 mins from me!!! It is such a great place to wander around. Sounds like you had a fantastic time on your holiday! Hugs Andrea xx
