Saturday 22nd March – trip to the Blue Mountains

Lazy morning, took the bus to Wynyard (experts now) then due to rail replacement we got a bus to Blacktown and finally a tripledecker train to Katoomba in the Blue Mountains.

On the way I was very excited to see 2 cockatoos playing in a tree. Soon realised that in Katoomba that’s nothing special as soon were seeing flocks of 10 or more flying around!

We also travelled through a massive hail/thunderstorm which had thankfully eased off by the time we got off the train as it was a bit of a walk to our hostel – Blue Mountains YHA – in what was a ballroom then a bible college and now restored to 20s glamour but as a hostel.

The hostel was right next to an Aldi so once we’d checked in, dumped our bags, we went out and got some food before any more rain came!

All this travel is tiring so after a crumpet went for an afternoon/early evening nap, as when I woke up it was time to make dinner – sweet potato, tuna and veg – yum!!
