more mountains..

Just returned from a post Christmas mini break in the Blue Mountains. It is seriously beautiful up there and I would move there tomorrow but my hubby quite rightly pointed out that for a professional sailor to move to the mountains is tempting career suicide!
Had to share the fabulous Megalong Tea Rooms with you. The most tranquil spot to eat lunch. A family run business that are famous for their Devonshire teas but I HAD to have the Mediterranean ploughmans with locally grown olives and homemade tapenades. Was so fresh with heaps of creamy brie and warm bread.

How peaceful is this dining spot?! The kids can just run around and check out the kangaroos and horses milling around.

Inside the tea rooms were pretty quaint too. Would be lovely in Winter with the fire blazing.
My ultimate thing to do up in the mountains is vintage shopping. So many jam packed antique shops and markets and even the kids enjoyed finding some old 80's classics like the troll!

  1. Thanks for the tip on those tearooms, we're always looking for kiddy friendly places where our boys can roam :-) Would love some info on where the good markets and shops are too!
