Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Needs to start with the letter R and have at least 6 letters

The Alphabet According to Cee: R is for..

  • Rosella
  • Redhen Railcar
  • Roadhouse
  • Radiance of the Seas

Photography is still taking a back seat as I’ve been so busy recently. All of these photos are from the archives except the last one of Radiance of the Seas. I took that in Hobart recently when I spent the day with my friends Gillian and Bruce who were enjoying their first cruise.

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.
