As mentioned in my prior post Heartpoet and I have not long returned from a short trip. We took a few photo's whilst away so I will break them up and post them in three parts over this long weekend here in Brisbane.
The cosy and most comfortable chalet we stayed in is nestled right in the middle of the rainforest. It has been built around rainforest trees (in many instances including trees as part of the chalets structure so as not to damage the area) and directly borders the local running stream complete with waterfall. It rained (heavy at times and drizzle at other times) almost our whole trip away. The mountain air was invigoratingly fresh, crisp and cool yet never cold. There was a magical mist that hung in the air. Perfect weather for retreating for some rest and relaxation. Even with our chalets huge cathedral ceilings we could still hear the rain at all times. Don't you just love the sound of rain on a tin roof? Whilst inside the chalet it was such a treat to be able to view the roaring stream and tumbling waterfall from the lounge/kitchen/in bed/whilst in the spa and from the front and rear verandas. We spent a lot of romantic and relaxing time curled up in front of the fire, in the spa and in the hot tub on the veranda. Three nights and four days of long overdue bliss~!
See you tomorrow for Pt 2 :)
Joolz's Chicken Penne Pasta... - This recipe is an oldy but a goody! I just sort of made it up one night and the family loved it. I originally posted it in June, 2009 here. Cheers - J...
