Easter in the Blue Mountains
After a month of international travel, it was great to have a long weekend to re-equilibrate. Judy had arranged a hotel stay in the Blue Mountains – just an hour and a half west of Sydney and we drove up on Good Friday (with most of the rest of Sydney, it seemed!).
Our hotel was a former “temperance” guest house, built in the early 1900s to provide “respectable” accommodation in the mountains, free of the temptations of alcohol. Happily that had changed, but the decor maintained the earlier style and grandeur.
And the view from the restaurant/breakfast room was a gorgeous panorama of the mountains and valleys.
We spent the weekend walking, driving and drinking coffee – all according to our whimsy. Most enjoyable.
