Weekend up in Mount Victoria, Blue Mountains

Sunrise

My cousin rented a beautiful glass-filled 3-storey cabin in Mount Victoria for a weekend getaway and an excuse to celebrated a delayed Thanksgiving. The 6 of us who went had a most lovely time filled with much laughter, brilliant conversation, and delicious home-made food.

On Friday evening while we drove up, my cousin’s friend L whipped up some home-made pappardelle, mozarella with fresh basil and tomatoes for dinner when we arrived. In the morning, we had poached eggs with smashed avocados on toast. And for a late lunch after our hike to Hanging Rock, salad and salmon. At dusk, as we watched the sun cast its final rays over the valley below, C spatchcocked turkey she’d specially ordered for our Thanksgiving meal.

We are grateful indeed, for the delicious meals, for the perfect weekend weather, for the gorgeous cabin and scenery, and for the comradeship.
