.. into the Everglades on Valentines day

'what do you want to do on Valentines?' dutch husband asked..

I had been thinking of a picnic tea [with marinated chicken wings, tossed green salad, french yeasted sourdough and a strawberry heart cake for dessert & some red to wash it down] at Leura Cascades and then a romantic walk along the bush path to one of the most amazing lookouts in the world. [what we lack in the way of old buildings, here in Australia we certainly makeup for with natural wonders ~ Leura Cascades is just one of many here in my little corner of the world.] But it has been raining for nearly 40days and 40 nights, so that idea was out.

instead, he has booked a table for two at The Everglades Gardens. a National trust property, nearby. [the Everglades Historic home & gardens]

[photos & story of our romantic dinner will come tomorrow!]
