Mountain scenes and dial-up dilema

Waterfalls in the Blue Mountains, taken by my brother about 18 months ago, when he was visiting NSW. I started uploading them in Perth, one at a time, from my mother's computer via dial-up, but after a number of hours and frustrating attempts later, I saved the 2 I had done and gave up. One of the reasons you have not heard from me in a while. I also forgot my camera-phone charger and download cable - they were here at home. We also forgot the digital camera. So not many holiday snaps I'm sorry.

However I did have a wonderful time in Perth catching up with my mother, sister, brothers, neices and nephews and friends. It had been 17 years since all my family had been together for Christmas.
It was warm when we got there, but ok and I did actually wear a cardigan in the late afternoon, evenings a couple of times, then after Boxing Day it grew hotter and was really hot for about 2 weeks straight. Then last Mon & Tues it was cooler again. It was hot when we landed in Sydney on Wed and I went for a swim on Thursday while we were at dh mothers to catch up for 2 days.

Then it was just on dusk when I arrived home to a sea of agapanthus purple waving in the breeze. I started unpacking, washing, hanging and finally reading some blogs before bed.


  1. Lovely photos! I know...dial-up is so slow. I'm glad you were able to share these. The water on the rocks is so pretty!! ((Hugs))

  2. Beautiful waterfalls in the Blue Mountains! Did you see my waterfalls of the Tablelands on 14th January? I chose the Zillie Falls and a few others.
    Thanks for the tip about the tea spots!

  3. I LOVE th Blue Mountains Rose. Last time I was there was over 12 years ago. Wonderful. As for Dial up I have it here on the farm being rural and all there's a waiting list for broadband. I just lower the file sizes down on my images so it doesn't take so long to upload. I'm under pressure to come over to Gosford and visit my sister and brother who both live there with their families. Oh well I'll keep saving for that trip as well.LOL!

  4. I love the pictures. Someday I am going to get a camera that I can do what you and Liz with your pictures. Thanks, for sharing.


  5. We hope to go to Perth this year. The slideshow widget is great. I got mine when I saw "Food, fun and farm life in Africa."
