You must all be getting tired of my excuses about the rain but really it has been one of the wettest October’s since I moved to Tasmania. When you don’t have a car it makes going out to take pictures very difficult so as I have once again failed to get out and take any new photos here is an old one taken on the Hobart waterfront in sunnier  times.



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. I completely understand. Our October has been really rainy too. Looking back through my journals, I think we’ve only had three sunny days all month. Here’s to sunnier days ahead!

  2. Well, I see it the same, you can still use these days to go through your library, I do it all the time if I didn’t go out shooting for a while. Not only because of the weather, but sometimes there are so busy weeks that there is only time to create small blogposts, but not the time to go outside to take new pictures. I’d say don’t worry 🙂 It would be too sad if we wouldn’t also use our older photos.
