Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Needs to Start or End with the Letter Y

I didn’t mind having the letter Y  for this week as it gave me another excuse to use photos of Toby and Teddy. I had a lovely walk around the town looking for other things to photograph and got one or two good ones. We’ve had some dodgy weather with hot days and strong winds or very wet days. We’ve had the lot in one day. Many people have said to me that you often get four seasons in one day over here and they are quite right but despite that we’ve managed to get out for our walks and I actually got to take some new photos. I love the High Street here in Oatlands. There are so many old and interesting buildings here. Quite a few of the buildings along the High Street are built from sandstone and date back to the 1860’s I think. They are very old anyway but in wonderful condition. Others are of weatherboard. The Pharmacy is a mix of both sandstone and weather board and I always loved the front of this building so I have featured it today. The other photos are a mixture of other Y places and things. All of these photos have the subject ending in the letter “Y”

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
