Good news today. Our fire has been downgraded to “No Alert”. It is still going but is listed as being controlled. I can only find one of the three locations listed now. There are still several choppers, tankers and crews working on the hot spots. It’s very windy today so they need to be sure those are mopped up.

I probably won’t do another update about this unless something changes drastically. One “glass half full” kind of local posted on the Sisters Beach Facebook page “at least we have a good fire break now”. It’s only the start of the fire season. There is a long way to go.



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.


    • Well someone else commented that but it is true. Better still the local wildlife carer said that the firies had told her that they had not seen any injured wildlife so far.
