Warick Day 3 – mountains, waterfalls, villages, farmland and a retirement village tour
What a day! Graeme arrived at about 9.00 a.m. and we set off on a day of exploring. We drove through Killarney, a local farming village in a beautiful setting with green farmland and mountains as a backdrop. Our goal was the Queen Mary Falls, but we stopped at Daggs Falls Park on the way.
Our next stop was the cafe at Queen Mary Falls. We had a Devonshire Tea, but restricted ourselves to one scone each as we had special place for lunch planned after our walk and wanted to be able to do it justice.
The challenge was then whether we stopped at the lookout to the falls or went down to the base and up the other side. Of course we did it, did you doubt we would?
After driving a different scenic route we arrived back in town and had hot chocolate and vanilla slice for afternoon tea. We shared the one slice between three people, don’t forget it wasn’t that long since we had had lunch.
They had lots of specialty products for sale in the cafe. I wanted to buy Stephen some apple streudel jam, but he wasn’t going to spend $10.00 to find out what it tasted like.
There is a swimming pool, small temporary clubhouse, and a new large clubhouse being built. There are many delightful outdoor spaces with work done by various creative residents working together.
Although it looks like we were just sightseeing, or eating and drinking, we actually had time for conversation about families and loved ones and music, etc. which contributed to a very full day. Overall, a wonderful experience and I was able to take photos to my heart’s content!
