About 10 days ago we packed the car and headed down the Pacific Highway towards Sydney.
On the first night we stayed in Nambucca Heads. It is a beautiful seaside town about 5 hours drive south of Brisbane.
For the next few days we stayed on a houseboat on the Hawkesbury River. The Hawkesbury River is about 50 klms north of Sydney.
We had booked with Ripples House boats and stayed for 4 nights. It was so peaceful. We just cruised around, threw in a line or two and I did some sewing.
We then headed to the mountains - The Blue Mountains. The children wanted to go to the Jenolan Caves. We stayed in most delightful house in Leura named Leura Camillas. We did enjoy the cold weather for 2 nights and actually saw real autumn leaves. That is something we never see in Queensland.
We went to see the 3 Sisters and the falls before heading back down the mountains to Sydney for the Sydney Teddy bear Fair at Homebush Bay.
We did have a one stop on the way to Homebush Bay at Rick Rutherford's Country shop. It was an absolute haven. I just wish that I had more room in my car. www.rickrutherford.com
