Just to give you an indication of the high ceilings
It was stunning. The communal dining room has a bar with port, sherry, pink champagne, and an abundance of tea and coffee. The bookcase (colour-coded of course) is actually a 'secret passageway' to the hosts' mini house. There was also a full-sized pool table for people who are more coordinated than me.
After a night's sleep in, yes I'm about to say it, the world's most comfortable bed - we hopped into the car and headed to Jenolan Caves. I'm not sure how I managed to miss all the school excursions to Jenolan Caves but I've never been there. Yes you can judge me now. Visibility was pretty poor most of the way...
The tour we originally wanted (Chifley) sold out a few people ahead of us so we settled for the next available tour - the Temple of Baal.

I will admit, I didn't find it enthralling. It's like Hi here's a rock. Hi here's another rock. Great, rocks are rocks. I'm sorry I don't find it as interesting as others might find it. I did, however, enjoy spending time in the gift shop. I know it's a gimmick but I bought 2 pieces of agate - a fuchsia coloured one for myself and a purple one for my sister who's obsessed with purple:
The fog didn't clear all day and by dinnertime was looking like this:
It started thunderstorming so we raided the BnB's DVD collection and I found Coneheads!! I watched the crap out of this movie when I was little (this and Wayne's World) but Tom's never seen it so we jumped into bed and put this on the tv.
|Aaah childhood memories|
Luckily by Sunday morning all the fog from Saturday had gone and there was no trace of the thunderstorm. I took a few pics of the BnB before we checked out.
We walked up to Leura Mall where there was a Village Fair and explored.
|I love that their storage items double as interior decoration. My boy also wanted to buy that random $450 guitar thing. Wtf|
