Cee’s Which Way Challenge – 2015 – Week #18

Which Way to avoid delay?

There have been a lot of road works going on near our house recently. One morning I was woken at 6am by the crash of the metal signs being placed near our drive way and vehicles with flashing lights. Luckily I’d been planning to get up at that time anyway. Another morning I went down my driveway to wait for the bus only to discover cars banked up way down the road. I thought it would be a big hassle to try to get the bus to stop for me once the traffic was moving again so I delayed my trip that day.

These photos were taken the previous week when a patrol came by to trim the trees that grow near the power lines. I went out to see what was holding up the traffic and they were just down the road from me.

As I live on the main road and there is no other way to go to Hobart but to take this road avoiding delay is not an option.


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.
