Very close to where we were staying in Blackheath is Govetts Leap, another lookout. After packing up, we travelled about 7 minutes. Once again, quite a breathtaking view. Sadly, both days I haven’t had sunrise or sunset photos at the lookouts. Today has been mostly sunny and Blue Mountains with clear blue skies is what we have.
After admiring the view for a while we were tempted to walk to a waterfall, a 15 minute stroll, we thought. Ha! It was a gentle stroll upwards for a while, then the path went steeply downwards, for ages. And we couldn’t help thinking about the return.
We then drove about 50 kms to Wallerawang to a free campsite on Lake Wallace. We refuelled on the way. The overnight temperatures in Blackheath were about 8 degrees, here the overnight is forecast to be 1. We will need our deisel heater.
After lunch and a rest we walked into the town for afternoon tea and a sort of iced cake with custard, we don’t know the name, with coffee for me and hot chocolate for him at the local bakery. We walked along the street to the grocery store for baby wipes and peanut butter. We crossed a road bridge to get to the main street, then crossed at the railway station on the way back. We couldn’t work out if the station is in operation, there is a cafe there and it somehow doesn’t look like a working station.
Stephen is making tea tonight, which gives me time to blog. A good division of labour, I think.
Yesterday we did 15,000 steps and 12 floors. Today we did 13,000 steps and 19 floors. We are getting very fit.
