Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Here Comes The Sun

A Long Wet Winter

Here comes the sun do, do, do

Here comes the sun

And I say it’s all right

Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter

Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here

It’s been a long, wet winter here at Sisters Beach. Since Naomi moved here in mid July we’ve hardly had a day when it hasn’t rained. Some days have been wet all day while others have been intermittently wet. We’ve had days when the rain poured down all day and the skies remained grey and days when the rain has been accompanied by icy cold winds. It doesn’t snow here of course because we are at sea level and we don’t get the frost and fog that we used to get in Oatlands and Geeveston but it has still been pretty miserable.

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting

Now that we’re getting towards the latter part of August we are hoping for some nicer weather. Our spring bulbs are starting to flower so although there could be a lot of nasty weather to come it feels like spring is a little closer.

Wattle flowers in winter

While we are waiting for our bulbs to bloom Naomi decided to brighten up the front entrance with some winter flowering pansies and polyanthus. They cheered us up.

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.
