The other day I was wondering which type of track was best ... an avenue of exotic trees or a dirt track through native forest. I actually think neither of those (through they are both beautiful). I reckon the very best type is a winding road through rain forest.
This is going through an area called Mermaid's Cave Recreation Reserve, beats me why since we are nowhere near the sea.

It was such a lovely day, sunny but not hot, we decided to take a drive before going back home. Following the road along Shipley's Plateau from Blackheath ends at Hargreaves Lookout which has nice views to the west where mountain wilderness begins to give way to farmland. Rain was beginning to fall in places.

We are lucky to have a Gleebooks shop here in the mountains. Another place where I am sure to find something to enjoy reading. They have a good poetry collection that I find hard to resist. And I love looking at the beautiful garden books -- but don't buy them because no amount of dreaming is going to transform my garden. But what's with all of the adult colouring books filling the shelves in bookshops these days?

Over the next few days I am going to back track and show you some of the other places we explored with our guests. The recently refurbished Hydro Majestic Hotel is on the must do list for many visitors these days.
This is the Wintergarden which "offers a premium afternoon high tea which is the perfect place to enjoy this grand tradition whilst enjoying the spectacular views of the Megalong Valley."
We didn't indulge but I might be tempted to go back one day. I will give you a glimpse at the views tomorrow.

Happy New Year. I'm planning to walk more and post more often this year.
Today we took a walk over to Badgery's Crescent because we heard a new shop had set up there. Replacing Badgery's Attic which sold toys trains and old wares. It's now artisan made wares and organic produce. I hope they do well.
