This is Kylie, Ajila, & Jennifer
Kylie and Ajila were kind enough to show us some of the sites outside of Sydney. This is how we spent Sunday. Some awesome sites. Just so you know Katoomba and Kiama are south of Sydney.

The Royal National Park is the second National Park ever established. The first was Yellowstone (which is in the US).

We stopped for morning tea and had a lovely view of the water. Tea is often used synonomously for meal time, i.e. morning tea would mean breakfast, afternoon tea lunch, and just tea might mean dinner but it could also be used to mean a coffee or smoke break, or a light snack. Here is the real kicker, when someone mentions tea it doesn't neccesarily mean that they will actually drink tea. In restaurants over here they don't serve iced tea, just hot tea. Now, you can get it in a bottle at the convenient store, though. These next few pics are just some of the shots from the Grand Pacific Drive which took us through the park.

These shots are taken at a place called Bald Hill at Stanwell Park. It is a popular place for hang gliders to make their leap. I didn't have the opportunity to hang glide but I think I would've jumped at the opportunity, MAYBE.
