Even in the rain, the train trip is beautiful (and train = editing novel), especially the climb through Glenwood and across the top of the escarpment. Fog greeted me at Katoomba, and so did Jenny from Shelton-Lea (my favourite B&B in Lurline Street). The temperature reached an astonishing 9C here today; 6C with wind chill (felt like 3C).
It was too miserable for hiking (too hard to dry shoes etc) so I had a relaxing walk up to the new Coles (!! built in six months!) and the new Cultural Centre between Coles and the Carrington Hotel). THAT is stunning!
Birds: sulphurs, pied currawongs, indian mynah (grrr), spoggies...i.e. not much! Hopefully more tomorrow.
And the rain lifted enough so I could walk/run down to Echo Point - so different under heavy cloud.
Happy writing and bushwalking
