Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge 2015 – Week #31


Which Way Vince’s Saddle

I have missed a couple of Which Ways lately because I’ve not really been anywhere except to Hobart and back. Earlier this week we had some big falls of snow right down to sea level and the buses didn’t run for two days because of ice and snow on a section of the Huon Highway. It didn’t snow much at my place  so I was champing at the bit to get out and see some snow; and to take Hubby his clean laundry of course.

Vince’s Saddle is the highest point on the Huon Highway at 376 metres. I’ve seen snow up there before but only once since I’ve lived here has the road been closed because of it. It was not a nice day, there was drizzle, fog and in patches it was still snowing but the bus made it up and over the hill and down into Hobart. A lot of the snow from the previous two days had melted by this time. I took a few pictures from the bus. Please excuse the reflections.

Mount Wellington was so completely obscured by cloud that if a giant had come and taken it away we would not have known. I had to go to Hobart again the next day with more laundry and the clouds were gone. Mount Wellington was still there!

Taswegian1957

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. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.
