I’ve been busy with doll posts today so here is a picture taken on holidays. We saw so much shipping in the Straits of Malacca but these small boats were some of the most interesting . I don’t know if they are actually for fishing but they would certainly be too small for anything more than local freight.
While out today I spotted this sail boat that I rather liked so snapped a quick shot of it. At first I thought it had been left high and dry but it was in the water. It was surrounded by reeds and grass which gave the impression it was on dry land. It made for a good photo anyway.
Two grand old ladies, MV Cartela built in 1912 and Preana built in 1896. Cartela is currently undergoing restoration to be returned to steam power and Preana is restored and available for charter trips.
The West Coast Wilderness Railway runs between Queenstown and Strahan. Its three locomotives are the original ones used by the Mt Lyell Railway Company to service the mines. All were built inbetween 1896-98
Since transport is one of my main interests I decided that I would also join in this one and post a few of my photos for the fun of it. These from Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
How could I resist joining in this challenge? The only local public transport we have around here is the bus but as a non driver I’ve used plenty of public transport while living in Adelaide and of course public transport is usually the easiest way to get around when you are visiting a large city.Here are some ways of getting around in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Hobart.
Hi everyone, we are back from our cruise holiday although still recovering from it. In the three weeks since we left autumn has really begun in Tasmania and the clocks have been put back so it feels a lot different to when we left. We have a lot of photos to edit and Naomi has taken a lot of film which we also hope to share after she’s edited the various segments so there will be a series of posts about the cruise, the ship, the crew members and the places we visited over the next few months.
We will also be continuing with our search for a new home as I have a potential buyer for mine so forgive us if our posts are a bit all over the place. We’ll do our best to continue to post regularly as we prepare to move.
As you read this post Naomi and I will be jetting off to Sydney to begin our cruise to Singapore on Ovation of the Seas. We will be away for three weeks and while we will try to check in to the blogs when we can we don’t really want to buy expensive ships internet for the duration of the voyage so we won’t be posting about the trip until after we return. I have scheduled a few posts to appear while we’re gone but obviously we won’t be participating in challenges and there may be delays in our answering comments.
We’ll be back around the middle of April.
