Geoffs Life After Work !

Life is just beginning

Katoomba in the Magnificent Blue Mountains!!

We are camped aprox 1300 metres above seal level in Blackheath,the weather is NOT good!! Not exactly rain but more a heavily water filled low flying cloud !!  We drove around 40kms to Katoomba where the Scenicworld world train/cable cars and the Sky cradle are run When we arrived everywhere was covered in mist and visibility was very low ,consequently we bought an all day ticket to enjoy as many rides as we could fit in !! The day brightened and we were able to get some great pictures This particular Blog will have a record number of pictures !!!Photography does not do justice to the magical ambience of this part of the world Much as we would like to have stayed here a couple of days we have a New Years Eve Ferry Boat deadline to meet I am SO pleased we opted for doing the Grey Nomad travel adventures and the brilliant scenery we witnessed today bears testament to the life changing decision All this tourist adventure world was originally a coal mine How the hell they discovered the seam half way down a mountain is beyond me !!!  The engineering feats achieved when the mine was opened around 1850 is incredible
