Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge:Commercial Buildings or Shopfronts

Let’s Go Shopping

I had plans to take some photos of the shops in Wynyard on Friday. We went there for lunch and while we were eating it started to rain heavily and continued for the rest of the day so that was that. We only have one shop at Sisters Beach so back to the archives for the rest.

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.


    • It’s barely even a town, just the one shop which is also the post office and bottleshop. There is a fire station which houses one fire engine and that’s it. No other community buildings at all. For everything else we go to Wynyard. However that’s the way that the people who live here like it. Peaceful and part of nature.
