My walk through Callington Park and the Oatlands Mill

Hello again. This morning I took the dogs for their walk as usual. This time we went part of the way around the lake and across to Callington Park where I let them have a bit of a run round. After that we walked through the mill complex and back down the High Street to home. I took a few photos but the sun was against me as usual and they have come out a bit shadowy but here they are anyway. The sun is not my friend.

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
