Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – This Land Is My Land

As I was walking that ribbon of highway, 
I saw above me that endless skyway:

Ribbon of Highway-South Australia- Victoria

I saw below me that golden valley:
This land was made for you and me.

I saw below me that golden valley: 
This land was made for you and me.

I saw below me that golden valley: 
This land was made for you and me.

I’ve roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps, 
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts;

34 Old Railway Station
Ruins, Flinders Ranges, South Australia


Newcastle Beach
Newcastle Beach, New South Wales

And all around me a voice was sounding: 
This land was made for you and me.

I love the variety that is Australia.


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 WordPress.com 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.
