As I’ve mentioned previously when I have house viewings I usually take Cindy for a walk. This has not been a whole lot of fun as most of my house viewings seem to take place on wet days and I end up heading for the nearest bit of shelter I can find. However, this week the two viewings I’ve had were on dry days so Cindy got a run on land by the football ground and I decided to look out for some photos for Cee’s Challenges.
There is a farm not far from my place and the boundary comes pretty near to the road. As I was walking past I noticed that behind the glass blowers studio was some old wooden fencing that would make a good photo. I don’t normally go round the back of that building but nobody was around today.
It was not easy to take photographs while holding Cindy with one hand and the smartphone decided to be particularly annoying by opening apps I didn’t want instead of the camera app and then taking random photos of my hands and feet when it did decide to work. Believe me, it was very nearly an ex smartphone today.
I did manage to get a couple of other photos while I was there but may return another day with my real camera and without Cindy.
I could not help but think of the beautiful reflections that I see in the still waters of the Huon River on a calm day. That’s where most of these photos were taken either at Port Huon, Franklin or Huonville. The last two were taken at Strahan on Tasmania’s West Coast and Lake Dulverton at Oatlands.
Yesterday was our federal election and I spent the day working at the Op Shop. The school was a polling place and the parents’ group ran a sausage sizzle as a fundraiser. Here is my sausage, with onion but no sauce.
The day was very pleasant, the shop did well, the sausages all sold out and there was a nice community atmosphere.
Unfortunately, the day went downhill once the polls closed and the Liberal government was returned for another three years. There is a lot more I’d like to say about that but I should probably wait till I’m less angry; maybe in about three years.
