Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Chutes and Ladders


Chutes and Ladders

I know this game as “Snakes and Ladders” but there is no way I’m getting close enough to a snake to photograph it.

Here are some ladders:

Here is a chute, or as I would say, a slide. This is on the waterfront in Wellington, New Zealand. The following photo is the French Fountain at the Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in Hobart. The last one, The Flow Rider, on Explorer of the Seas is basically a water slide.

We loved this quirky structure.

Finally my version of a snake picture. This sign is at Franklin where there is a nature walk by the river. A volunteer told me that a relative of hers painted it but they actually had to ask her not to make it too cute in case people didn’t take it seriously. It is snake season here now and nearly all Australian snakes are dangerous so I take them very seriously. However, I do think the sign is cute.

Born in England in 1957 my 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. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
