Rather than send emails and seeing as we have our own web pages I thought it might be more fun to do a Blog. This will contain what we are doing, where we have been as well as the 'Rookie Mistakes' as I chose to call them. These are the other things that happen in life. As with anything new, if we make mistakes we hopefully learn from them. If not is it called stupidity ?

I'll include a few pictures but the majority will be posted under our web pages as normal. I'll include hyper-links once they are there as these will not be uppdated daily unless I have plenty of time.

We hope that you get some enjoyment out of our travels and who knows, maybe we'll see you somewhere along the way.

If you would like to contact us you can do so by email to cimuchamore@gmail.com or gmmuchamore@gmail.com

We will get back to you but probably not immediately as we are not always on line these days. There is still the good old phone if you ever feel like a chat.

JUST RELEASED by CHRISTINE STEWART - Collits' Inn: Uncovering the Past

                                                        Surprises found in restoring this 1823 Australian icon.

Christine writes - "This book is my personal story of restoring one of Australia's earliest inns. Collits' Inn sits at the foot of Mount York, in Hartley Vale, just the other side of the Blue Mountains. The Inn was built by Pierce Collits, an ex-convict in 1823."

"Restoring Collits' Inn and researching its history has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I hope you find it as fascinating as I have."

Gai has just published a book " Collits Inn - Past and Present". This book is a photographic history of the Inn from it's early days through to the restoration and beyond.

As a Collits descendant,(from the John and James side), Gai has visited the Inn many times from the 1970's to 2005. The book also contains a short history of Pierce and Mary and also some history and photographs of the Collits Inn Play. Also available is a reprint of " A Biographical Look at the Collits Family"

This book was originally compiled by Gai in 1988 and contains short stories written by Collits descendants about their ancestors. The book was compiled for our 1st reunion.

If you would like to purchase a copy of either "Collits Inn -Past and Present" or " A Biographical Look at the Collits Family" this can be done by emailing Gai direct at cimuchamore@gmail.com . Books are now back in stock.
