Sunday 26th October 2014

The day began with a little refreshing rain but quickly supercharged to Molten!
We left the skyriders motel & went to a series of lookout points on Ians itinerary.

Evans lookout provides a magnificent view over this section of the gorge.
Ian found a track to a slightly different view point at Govatts leap, look mum , no handrail..
Dear insurance company , please accept this photo as evidence he wasn't pushed !!

The blue mountains are named after the blue mist which shrouds the skyline..This is caused by the evaporation of the Eucalyptus oil which occurs in the extreme heat.

Lunch was at Busbys cafe restaurant at Wisemans Ferry, The temperatures souring to a sweltering 36 degrees we sat on the terrace & enjoyed the occasional breezy moment . We entered Apple orchard country, every farm & store boasting magnificent home made pies, we resisted the urge to sample these tempting wares : )

We took a short ferry ride after our meal & continued north towards Morpeth.

After a dip in the pool while Ian snoozed, we ventured out into Morpeth.
Our motel keepers recco of the local inn for a bar meal wasn't for us, we stumbled upon this little gem.

" Morpeth Wood fired Pizza, Indian delicacies & Wine cellar "

Populated by charming Indian staff, we passed through a wine emporium into an Italian style eatery complete with open pizza oven, to the leafy garden area, an idilic cool sanctuary in which to relax.

I enjoyed a 2 glass bottle of wine from the attached offy & some beautiful spiced prawns..Never failing to be predictable Ian chose the chicken vindaloo.

I will be setting an alarm to ensure I get first dibs on the bathroom tomorrow.

Goodnight all & thanks for the comments xxx
