Blue Mountains getaway

The last few days of my Christmas holidays were spent surrounded by family in the picturesque Blue Mountains – bliss!

To celebrate my father and mother’s birthdays we all gathered together to eat, drink, talk and, most importantly, explore! I spent most of my Saturday within the remarkable Jenolan Caves and can’t wait to post most about our visit. For now though, I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on the joys of gathering together with good people.

Spending precious time with family, especially when you live far apart from one another, is such a gift. In just one weekend we managed to:

  • Celebrate some milestones with our favourite celebratory champagne – Veuve Clicquot.
  • Dance the twist to the Beatles in the middle of a kitchen.
  • Consume more cheese than is possibly good for us.
  • Explore some street art off Katoomba’s Main Street.
  • Make pasta with fresh vegetables from my parents’ garden.
  • Indulge in the deepest and bubbliest of bubble baths.
  • Take two different tours deep within the Jenolan Caves.
  • Explore the stunning blue lake and spot water dragons.
  • Taste test some cocktails to celebrate our successful spelunking.
  • Enjoy dinner out at Vesta, including the best pork dish any of us have ever tasted.
  • Take in the view of the Three Sisters.
  • Relive some of my husband’s childhood memories at the Paragon Cafe.
