Having been trapped in the city since February it was time for the great escape. Even if only for a day. Over the last few weeks I have been slack on the creative side of life so getting out and experiencing life away from the hustle and bustle should kick start me again.

I even sacrificed a sketch crawl starting in my own backyard, Newtown. So I will have to fill my sketchbook some other way.

For the escape we headed out to the Blue Mountains and went for a walk around Wentworth Falls. The 30 minute stroll extended to almost 2 hours when we decided to continue along National pass. Luckily the weather held off and the rain skirted the cliff we were walking along. Finished off with a hot drink and some cake at the end we had certainly forgotten about the pace of the city.

Unfortunately the long weekend traffic really became a drag with the first 10k's taking forever. But we are home now and all the better for it.

How lovely! Newtown's great, but it's good to get out every now and then. And away from the city.

Looks like you had a great time.
