I HIRED A LARGE LUXURY BUS AND SPECIFICALLY ASKED FOR A DRIVER
WITH A SENSE OF HUMOUR TO COPE WITH OUR CRAZY VT FRIENDS.

NUMBERS WERE DOWN THIS YEAR SO I HAD TO REDUCE THE BUS TO A
21 SEATER. IT WAS A NICE SURPRISE WHEN THE LUXURY BUS TURNED
UP TO TAKE US TO OUR FIRST DAY OUT TO THE BLUE MOUNTAINS :)

1ST STOP WAS THE CONSERVATION HUT FOR LUNCH INCLUDING
FABULOUS VIEWS OVER THE BLUE MOUNTAINS.

WE THEN ENJOYED A WANDER AROUND THE FAMOUS 3 SISTERS -
3 UNIQUE ROCK FORMATIONS.

VA'S (Virtual Attendees - the plastic people..) LOVE TO CAUSE TOTAL
DISRUPTION. BRIAN, THE BUS DRIVER THOUGHT WE HAD ALL GONE
MAD.... ALLOWING THE VA'S TO JUMP ALL OVER A STATUE OF ONE OF
THE FIRST PIONEERS TO THE AREA WHO WORKED ON THE EARLY
INFRASTRUCTURE, ROADS ETC. SIGN POST SAID NOT TO TOUCH....
NAUGHTY VA'S!!

WITH ALL THE HAVOC THE VA'S WERE CAUSING, WE FORGOT ABOUT
THE TIME AND BRIAN HAD TO DRAG US AWAY AS WE WERE RUNNING
OUT OF TIME AND STILL HAD THE FAMOUNS SCENIC WORLD TO VISIT.

AS IT WAS, WE ONLY JUST MADE IT IN TIME TO SCENIC WORLD BUT
RAN OUT OF TIME TO GO ON ANY OF THE RIDES WHICH WAS A SHAME.

SCENIC WORLD HAS THE STEEPEST RAILWAY IN THE SOUTHERN
HEMISPHERE, TRAVELLING DOWN THE HILL AT A 90D ANGLE.

THEN THERE'S THE CABLE CAR FOR STUNNING VIEWS OVER THE MOUNTAINS.

AND ANOTHER SKYCAB THAT RUNS BETWEEN MOUNTAINS.

IT WAS NICE TO COME BACK TO THE HOTEL AND ALL SHARE IN A GOOD
OLD AUSSIE BBQ.

TOMORROW WE PLAN TO HEAD OFF THE BEATEN PATH AND
EXPLORE SOME LOVELY COUNTRYSIDE AND A PICTURE PERFECT SURF BEACH
INCLUDING LOCAL BEER TASTINGS AT A SMALL MICRO BREWERY.
