A Lovely Way to Spend the Day
We received a safety recall notice from our vehicle manufacturer and the nearest dealer was 84 kilometres (52.1 miles) away in Moss Vale in the New South Wales Southern Highlands. Not a great distance to travel, but factor in the two mountain ranges, and four sections currently undergoing road works, the ‘trip’ took us a little over 1½ hours.
After arriving at the dealership and handing the car over, we then had two hours to kill, and spent this time enjoying a coffee and walking up and down a section of the main street where cherry blossoms are blooming.
The trees are loaded with masses of flowers. Some have not bloomed, others are dying but made for a wonderful sight when the wind hit them scattering their petals.
Back at the dealership, with the manufacturers problem rectified, and the car washed (wow, I did not expect that), we then headed back, stopping off at Fitzroy Falls on the way past and had a quick walk around. After all the rain the area has had, the falls were absolutely roaring with the gushing water spilling over the edge.
It was too early to see many wildflowers, but I managed to photograph a couple of early bloomers.
I’ve added photos of the cherry blossoms and a few from Fitzroy Falls to the Photography page, so pop over and have a look.
By the time we arrived back in Basin View, we’d been gone all day.
It was a very lovely way to spend the first day of Spring.
