Day 6

This morning we met at Geoff's house to begin our activities. I had a day host from Sydney named Elizabeth Murray. We drove to Evans Lookout to observe a panoramic view.  This was a new sight for me as it was a different valley.  Some of the Sacramento Group took a walking tour from Evans's Lookout to our next stop at Garret's Leap.  The entire group took a lot of photos of the mountains and Grose Valley.  We returned to Blackheath Village to enjoy a coffee with our hosts.  It was good to get to know these new friends.  The coffee shop was an old movie theatre renovated with the lobby decorated with old movie posters around the walls.  The auditorium was converted to an antique mall that we enjoyed browsing.  We arrived at Anvil Rock and enjoyed the spectacular view. Again some of our group walked to a wind eroded cave.  Our lunch at the Megalong tearooms was a nice respite. We ate in the shade with a cool breeze and within sight of grazing sheep.  

Then we continued to a wine tasting. This was a disappointment to me.  It appeared to be very disorganised and I found out the wine was bottled elsewhere.  A delicious potluck dinner at our host's house with about 40 guests finished off the day with good food and conversation. Another outstanding day for the exchange.
