Every year my friend of more than sixty years and I try to spend a week together. This year we rented a stone house on the edge of the Wollemi national park, overlooked by sandstone cliffs.


From this base we walked around Ganguddy where a dam built by nearby cement works in the 1920s has metamorphosed into a beautiful lake.


We photographed in Rylstone and Mudgee; and in Sofala and Hill End, two nineteenth century gold mining towns.





Hill End


We captured the remnants of railway days in Lue.


We walked on the edge of sandstone gorges and past sandstone pagodas at Ferntree Gully.


We lunched at the Pipeclay Pumphouse at Robert Stein's Mudgee winery to celebrate our 70th birthdays, both now well in the past.


And of course we photographed flowers, and even found a few orchids.



Thank you, Rosemary, for a lovely few days exploring the central tablelands of NSW.
