While in the area we also did a great day trip to visit Jenolan Caves. The underground formations were amazing. The girls really enjoyed hearing all about the way the caves formed, stalactites, stalagmites and underground rivers.

While we are on the boat I'm usually checking the weather forecast regularly (Em may even say a little too regularly!!) but this week I didn't show much interest. That is until I realised that NSW was being battered by a huge East coast low and felt glad to be a fair way inland, though a bit worried about how the boat was.
We returned to the boat by bus and train on Saturday (We had to check D'Arcy's bag as we left to make sure she hadn't hidden one of the dogs inside) and it was quite windy and wet but all was well aboard. That night a short but very sharp storm came through at about 1am with torrential rain, lightning and wind that really pushed us around in our berth in Gunnamatta Bay and even broke an aluminium pole on our boom tent. A good night to be tied up in the bay I think. Many others up and down the coast were not so lucky with much flooding and damage to houses.
This week we have headed South by road to Canberra (while strong northerlies continue on the coast) and again look forward to time with friends and seeing the sights while Em also works Tuesday to Friday.
