A Snowy Day in Oatlands Tasmania


Naomi’s entry for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Hot and/or Cold

These are some pictures I took here in Oatlands about two years ago in winter. I love the snow but we only get it in our town when it’s forecast down to 300 metres. Things I love about the snow are watching the little snowflakes fall to the ground, making a snowman, seeing it decorate the nearby mountains and buildings in the town. I love seeing it draped over all the trees and plants. I love the footprints left behind by birds and animals and even making my own. It’s sad when it melts away because we only get it once or twice a year in town. Here are some pictures from the winter of 2015.

I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see

    1. I felt quite cold myself remembering my walk to take those pictures. I could hardly see where I was going at one point and my hands were freezing. Worth it though. Thanks for liking.
