Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Must begin with the letter V and have at least six letters.

The alphabet according to Cee: V is for…

  • Voyager of the Seas/ Vacation
  • Valhalla ice cream
  • Vendors
  • Vintage cutlery
  • Vulcan

This is Voyager of the Seas, sister ship to Explorer of the Seas which we cruised on. Voyager visited Hobart in December 2016. We took some photos at Macquarie Wharf, this was before the river was dredged to allow larger ships into Wharf 2-3.  We then went across the river to Rosny Hill Lookout to take some more. Cruising is a popular vacation. (See how I did that?)

Valhalla Ice Cream is a locally made brand of ice cream that comes in several flavours. It’s very good. Valhalla was one of the many food vendors at the Taste of Tasmania Food Festival.

A friend of mine donated some vintage cutlery to the Op Shop. I brought them home to wash first.

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.
