Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Anything That Flies

Things that Fly

A few years ago, while on a visit to South Australia, I went to visit the Port Adelaide Aviation Museum. The aircraft in the foreground of the next photo is an RAAF Spitfire fighter plane. The following one is of some of the other exhibits which are housed in an unusually shaped hanger.

The following photos were taken at Lake Dulverton in Oatlands on one of my pet-sitting visits to Naomi some years ago. Part of the lake is a bird sanctuary.

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.


    • I changed my bird photos to black & white just for the post. As you know I much prefer colour for nature pictures especially. The Aviation Museum is very good. I never got to visit it when we lived in SA and it moved locations a few times, so I grabbed the opportunity to go. Port Adelaide is actually very good for museums. There is also a Railway Museum and a Maritime Museum.
