A Weekend in the Mountains

We just spent a very nice weekend in the Blue Mountains. On Friday we flew to Sydney, where Carol and David picked us up at the airport. Together we drove up to Leura where we had rented a holiday house for the weekend. We expected it to be fairly cold and packed accordingly but were pleasantly surprise how nice the weather was on Saturday.

We started off after breakfast at the Toy and Train Museum.

The museum belongs to the Evatt family (former Federal Opposition Leader)
There are lots of Railway buildings and trains on the property
Note to self: Must take up Smoking
Fountain in the garden
Then we went to Sublime Point for some stunning views over the mountains.

Finally we visited the Everglades for morning tea including a delicious French Pudding. Followed by  a stroll through the autumn-leaves.

These two were getting ready for a sprint.
On Sunday, we went to Blackheath and Govett's Leap lookout.
