Long Weekend

It was a long weekend here and Craig had a couple of days off so we headed up to the Blue Mountains to stay at Leura. We visited this quaint tea rooms in the Megalong Valley for lunch on Saturday and had yummy home made soup. They even had curls of butter to put on the rolls. The gardens were lovely.





We then went up to Hargraves Lookout and looked over the Megalong Valley, just spectacular.





We also had a look in the Hydro Majestic, an art deco hotel on the ridge of the valley.








The annual garden festival was on in Leura so here are some pics of the gorgeous gardens & flowers.

Here are some pics of the main street of Leura:



And of course I visited the patchwork shop - Picklemouse Corner and bought some fabric!



And this is the bunch of flowers we brought home.


There are more pics in the Picasa album if you want to see more!
