Bowral is a 40 minute drive from Primbee. It is up on the highlands and I took Paula up there today.
It was sunny at home although a little cool for this time of the year.
The drive was pleasant enough once Macquarie Pass was dispensed with and we took a shortcut across to Bowral via Kangaloon Rd and Sheepwash Rd. This is a magnificent drive on a deserted narrow country road which winds through the ever changing Highlands scenery.
After a nice lunch at Bowral we strolled from the main street up to the Cherry Tree Walk. I have been meaning to come here for some time. I corresponded with a local Vietnam Veteran some time ago about coming up and having a look, but our meeting never took place. But being spring, I thought it was an ideal time to 'have a look'.
Well the weather was bloody bleak, just like the middle of winter! Paula and I walked the entire length of the Cherry Tree walk, about 2 kilometres I guess; then we had to walk back to the car.
I was a little disappointed that the trees were not in bloom. It seems they bloom late in the highlands.
Still it was a pleasant day, in spite of the weather and we will return in a few weeks time when the trees are in full bloom.
It should be nice.
