On the Road with Naomi, Wazza, Phillip, Toby and Teddy.

While my friend Phillip was over here we went for several drives and often took my two dogs Toby and Teddy along with us. We decided on a trip to “The Foreshore” by the Derwent River between Montrose Bay and Wilkinson’s Point. Wilkinson’s Point is just after you get to the Derwent Entertainment Centre or DEC as it is known around these parts. We left the car near Montrose not far from the boating clubs and walked around the bay. There is a pathway that takes you over several boardwalks until you finally pass the DEC and arrive and Wilkinson’s Point. I’ll leave it to the photos to describe what we saw along the way but it was a very nice walk despite our usual bad luck with the weather. Rain saw us dodging in and out of shelter sheds but we had a lot of fun that afternoon. There are some links for those who would like to know more about this walk.

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
