This morning we headed north out of Sydney to Katoomba in The Blue Mountains, an hour & a half away.
Its so breathtakinly beautiful....
we got there early but there was lots of tourists and locals around already.....its always a popular stop.
Here is a pic of The 3 sisters.
As you approach Echo Point lookout there are stones along the way that have carved poems
this one says:-
When I reached the lookout at Echo Point,The light was thick and golden
As if it had passed all day through,
A butterfly’s dusty wing.
We wandered through Katoomba village, had some lunch and then drove to Leura the next village and walked around, ate icecream and peeked in the quaint little shops. We're so lucky to have such beautiful areas close to our busy hectic city....its nice to just hit the road and escape.
Next week we plan to head up that way again to Oberon forest for some Mushroom picking. Hope we find some!
On Friday I received these lovely ATCs in the mail from Marianne at Applehead,
they are adorable!!! Check out her 'small people' challenge...so cute!
Last week I also received the Autumn and Winter 06 editions of 'Marie Claire Idees' magazines from Paula all the way from Portugal.
I then received the Spring 07 issue as part of craft mag swap I was involved in so now I have 3 issues and Im definetly hooked - what a beautiful magazine!!
Its in French but if you read over and over you sort of get it...well sort of. My mum also knows a bit of French so I'll be asking her for sure....here are some inspiring pictures from the magazine! I love that tote bag....I'll be giving that a go....
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
