The weather is getting warmer! S’pose to be 29 on Friday, so we decided, why move further south when we can get on the water in our dingy, or ride around 164 acres of botanic gardens safely on our bikes!! So we are here for another week. Scott, following your sound advise we did go to Wellington Caves yesterday and really enjoyed revisiting Cathedral Cave – amazing….
This was inside a massive cavernous cave, and was used as a church back in the 1800s with the preacher climbing up onto it and preaching from the ‘pulpit’ (3rd picture). The fascinating thing is that the bible was left on the pulpit, and you can see it there right in the middle; it has been ‘dripped on’ for over 100 years and is now part of the crystallisation process and can’t be moved!! Amazing.
Today it was out with the pushies again and off to the botanic gardens to explore Fern Gully. What an amazing place this was, we really enjoyed wandering around amongst the ferns and listening to the birds. We were the only ones there so it was so very peaceful. Here are just a few of the photos we took!
Steve if you have a look at top LH photo you can see the canopy I was telling you about! There is 5500 sq mtrs of man made canopy over Fern Gully – turning it into this amazing place. The only down side was I got a puncture, another one! That makes 5 altogether for me, 1 for Jack! Jack had to abandon me there and ride back to the van (1.5kms) to get the car and the puncture kit!
That’s all for now folks, the dishes are almost all done so I can finish up this blog and get it posted and miss out on the wiping up haha!
