Cee’s Midweek Madness: Teal or Turquoise

Water & Wood

I had to dig into the archives for these photos. The water ones are a few years old from 2016-18. I am so glad that we got to go cruising while it was easy to do. Maybe we’ll go again one day but if not I have lovely photos to remember it by.

The Little Blue Lake trip was a few summers ago with Matt and Ally. It’s a pretty out of the way part of Tasmania so I don’t know if I’ll see that again either.

My other examples are of wooden items, honestly, I have a hard time telling turquoise from aqua. Teal I think of as having more green in it. I’d call the colour in my last photo teal. These photos are more recent 2020 to now.

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.


  1. When we were cruising, the pool wasn’t nearly that nice. i guess the newer ships are some design improvements. Little Blue Lack looks rather perfect, set in between hills. It must be full summer there because it’s deep winter here.

    • It is full summer here. Temperatures here on the coast are about 20-23 Celsius but that feels way warmer than it sounds. We’ve been using the air-conditioner. The new cruise ships do have lovely pool areas but I’m not so fond of the trend for bigger and bigger ships. I thought Explorer of the Seas was a nice size but Ovation was a bit too big for me.


    • Thanks Cee. I’d never heard of the Little Blue Lake before, I’d seen the Blue Lake in South Australia, but my friend Ally had been there with her parents and wanted to see it again.
