Snapshot Sunday: D’Entrecasteaux Channel


A view from the Channel Highway between Middleton and Cygnet 2009

This is an old photo but it is a view I’m fond of. A couple of times a year at least David and I would drive down the Channel Highway which branches off the Huon Highway at Huonville. In February we’d stop to photograph the scarecrows that were dotted along the road. At other times we might visit the Sunday market at Woodbridge or drive all the way to Kettering where the Bruny Island ferry berths. From there we could drive on to Margate and Kingston or turn around and stop at Cygnet for a coffee on the way home.

Born in England in 1957 my 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. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
