Breakfast at El Questro camp site, by the River

Zebedee Springs - El Questro. Beautiful, warm, wonderful, amazing. Palm trees and waterfalls and warm water.

Emma Gorge - El Questro. A long hike, then a beautiful gorge, freezing cold water, but a warm spring on one side. Amazing, beautiful, magnificent.

Coffee break back at the Restaurant near the El Questro bungalows - a beautiful spot - and a must for a wonderful 2 week holiday - I am dreaming of it.
