the armchair traveller
we have many tourist attractions and each day during the week, lots of tourist buses travel up to see the famous *3 Sisters* landmark in Katoomba...although it is quite nearby, I have never walked over to them as I am very afraid of heights. The winter time is very popular with city dwellers who come up here to experience a real winter, staying in the many guest house and bed & breakfasts which the area is famous for.
The town where I live is not big and all we have is a little corner store and a post office. Our train station usually wins the garden competition for the 'best railway garden'.
We are also famous for the *Woodford Academy*
built in 1833 and being the oldest building in the Blue Mountains. Originally built as an inn for passing travellers and is now owned by the national trust. Just recently, I joined the *friends of the Woodford Academy* and will now be able to serve afternoon tea in the tea rooms or give guided tours of the buildings. The history in this gorgeous old place is amazing. I love it!!!
so that is my little tour for today of the area in which I live
leaving you with this picture which is taken from my front verandah.... a view I look at every day... just gorgeous...
