Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Bathrooms or Outhouses


Dunnies and More

Before planning some new photos I checked my files to see what bathroom photos I already had. Funny the things you randomly photograph isn’t it?

A couple of years ago our public toilets in Geeveston needed to be renovated so some local folk had the idea of having a fundraiser. They called it “Flushing Away Winter”. This right royal dunny was on display for photographs but thankfully not in service. (Dunny is Australian slang for toilet).

The “gold-plated” toilet

As I have been obsessively photographing all the improvements made around the house I had naturally taken a photo when the toilet was renovated. The grab rails were put in for David although sadly he never got to use them.

After renovation, new tiles and grab rails.

This loo with a view is on Explorer of the Seas on Deck 11 just outside the Windjammer Buffet. I was amazed that a bathroom would have such a great view.

This one was taken at Open House Hobart inside an apartment that was open to view.

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 WordPress.com 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.
