Last Friday as I passed through Hobart on my way to Oatlands it was such a beautiful day that I felt like taking some photographs of St David’s. As I framed them a passer-by stopped to say. “You would get better photos on the inside.” She said that it might be possible to take photos inside the cathedral if I asked. I didn’t that day as I had luggage with me but I may go back another day and see if I can. I’ve never been inside the main part of the cathedral though I’ve often meant to. I like church architecture although I don’t really care for organised religion.


I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.


  1. Architecture is so interesting. the slide show is a nice feature. Do you know how long the cathedral has been there? And Oatlands is an interesting name as well, does the name signify anything like a person or agricultural area?
