Self portrait Tuesday (on Saturday)

Here is my first attempt at self portrait tuesday - my personal history. This is me circa 1978. Looking trez cool and posing in one of my tap concert costumes. I remember the sequins scratched my stomach and I thought the outfit looked stupid and unflattering. I was told to pose and smile for the photo - so I did. :)


Nobbys Beach in Newcastle over Christmas time, 2005. We happened to come by as there were over 20 people out kite surfing. It looked amazing.

Our canyoning/abseiling adventure

I was very brave last weekend and pushed the boundaries to join some friends on a canyoning and abseiling day with a company in the blue mountains - BMA. I'm afraid of heights, but had always wanted to aseil. The idea of canyoning was frightening, but sounded way cool and so far removed from my typical weekend I had to give it a go.

The week leading up to the weekend was miserable and very wet. I was worried the trip SHOULD be cancelled but wouldn't be and I was going to slip and break my neck or something. The pinnacle of the days adventure was a 30 metre abseil through a waterfall!!! Couldn't get photos of this due to light and the little disposable waterproof camera, but we did get a couple of good photos.
