Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Flying or Crawling


Flying or Crawling

Crawling Traffic

It was a beautiful Easter Sunday back around 2010. We’d just bought a new car and decided to take the ferry to Bruny Island. So, apparently, did everyone else. This is the queue slowly crawling towards the ferry back to Kettering in the afternoon. Plenty of time to hop out and take a picture.

Traffic has slowed to a crawl waiting to board the Bruny Island Ferry.

An even older photo from 1998, traffic moving at a crawl towards the boarding ramp on to Spirit of Tasmania at Port Melbourne. The white car in the centre of the picture belongs to Naomi. I was already on board as at that time passengers were not allowed to remain in the car with the driver while boarding. It was our first ever visit to Tasmania.

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.
