Blue Mountains Bicentenary 1813-2013 May 26

The weather continued its magic for our second day of a commemorative weekend for the folk of the Blue Mountains.

Mr Honey Pie and I managed to slip in a leisurely walk along the banks of Wentworth Fall Lake on a stunning autumn morning before heading back down the mountain for a concert.

Wentworth Falls Lake is of course named after the explorer Gregory Wentworth.
It was created by damming the Jamison Creek to provide water for the steam railway nearby.
Today it is a popular picnic destination and a bird and wildlife refuge.

It was a delight to see people dressed in period costume.  

 So reminded me of Jane Austen times.

  There was also a huge variety of craft stalls for the many visitors to the day.

  1. All those lovely colours of nature. I'd like to have a rummage along those stalls. Here in nearby bath, they have a Jane Austin day where all the visitors dress up as characters from her books.You might find this interesting.
