Grand Adventure Part 6 Day 1

Lovely morning!

We started off with a lovely walk at Lapstone hill to see the Lapstone Zig Zag.  The site of the Lucasville station. Spike had a jolly good time at the lookout.

Breakfast at the Crusty Loaf at Blaxland. I had the most amazing spinach and feta roll. The off to visit the resting place of Sir Henry Parkes. Next stop, The Prime Ministers' Corridor of Oaks. Joseph Jackson conceived the idea of an avenue of oak trees to be planted by all the Prime Ministers of Australia or their nearest surviving relative.

Then it was lunch at Schwarz Patisserie in wentworth Falls. 'It is not only well known in the Blue Mountains, it is famous as a specialist German bakery throughout the region with visitors travelling from far a-field just to grab one of their delights.' Absolutely amazing food!

We toddled off to Leura cascades, Wentworth Falls and Lennox Bridge. We wandered off to Glenbrook Lagoon to see some ducks for Gem. We had tea with himself's dad and then it was off to the pub for dinner and a quiet trip back to the Elf Sanctuary. Spike and I had a fabulous day in the Blue Mountains. We shall see what tomorrow brings!
