Friendship Group visits the Mountains
By Dan Hale
On Monday, 24th June, the seniors groups from St. Patrick’s Guildford, Holy Trinity Granville and Holy Family East Granville combined for a bus trip to the Blue Mountains. Unfortunately, the weather was not entirely our friend with showers coming and going.
We stopped at Glenbrook for morning tea and to pick up our guide for the day. The theme of the guides commentary was to visit and explain how the mountain towns had contributed to the war effort for both the first and second world wars.
Fortunately, our guide’s commentary was very interesting as the further we went up the mountains, the thicker the winter mountain mist got, so much so that the Megalong Valley and the Three Sisters at Katoomba couldn’t be seen!
We went up as far as Blackheath and visited Govett’s Leap; fortunately the thick mist had lifted and although not much sun shine, was a wonderful vista. Due to the recent rain, the water fall was showing what it could do; a very impressive sight indeed.
From here we headed back down the mountains to Lawson for lunch at the Lawson Hotel. After lunch we headed back to Glenbrook to drop of our guide before then heading on home.
