We have all been sick here with colds. So, I've been away from the computer for a few weeks.
Anyway, we took ourselves down the mountain for a drive to Penrith Valley Oranges. We picked ourselves some fresh juicy oranges. It seemed like a nice day. As soon as we pulled up it started to rain - only for about 10 minutes or so, luckily. We picked about 6kg - it felt heavier on the walk back to the weighing shed. The oranges were $2 per kg.
I was surprised to see how big the orange trees grew to. I didn't realise they grew so tall. A lot of the orange were out of our reach.
It was dry enough to get the camera out for some cute shots of Katie and her brother picking oranges. The kids where fascinated to see the different size oranges on the same tree - it was nice for them to see that things in nature aren't all the same like you get in the supermarket. ;)
We sat in the sunshine under one of the orange trees and peeled and gobbled down an orange. It was so delicious fresh from the tree.
Next to the shed we met one of the locals...
...... and here is the view at the beginning of the Blue Mountains.
