Cee’s Which Way Challenge: 11 August

Which Way Round the School

Today I have a few more pictures I took on my walk around Sacred Heart Catholic School and St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Geeveston. I found some  great which ways there.

At the back of the cemetery is a path that I thought must be lead to another part of the school property. Apparently I’m not the only person who thought so. It is private property and most likely it is part of the farm that I can see behind my house. The owners decided that they needed to make that clear.

OK I get it! I won’t go in there. The path in the next picture does not seem to have a great deal of use. It runs roughly along the boundary between the school and the power sub station next door. I usually walk this way to visit the cemetery as it is closer to my house.

This path was obviously intended for bike riding.

Undulating track for the kids to ride their bikes on.

I’m not sure if this path was intended for bikes or walking/running.

Which Way Down The Highway

These photos were all taken on the stretch of the Huon Highway between my house and the turn off at Scotts Road which is the route you take to bypass Geeveston when travelling to Dover and the far south. Walking towards Geeveston you can see the local power substation which I live next door to and  the Catholic Primary School. On the other side there are open fields and a couple of houses.

There is no footpath, I have to walk on the verge and generally walk facing oncoming traffic as the speed limit changes from 80-100 km/h in this stretch and it is not uncommon for it to go a lot faster. As this is the main highway there are heavy log trucks and other vehicles but thankfully it is not an overly busy road as you have to take care when crossing because of the speeds cars are travelling at. There are no pedestrian crossings.

I used to walk this way to Geeveston regularly, now I don’t do it so much mainly because I don’t really enjoy walking on the road verges any more and I don’t like taking Cindy that way. The surfaces are a bit uneven. I have fallen once or twice in the past although luckily damaged nothing more than my pride.

No footpaths around here.

Which Way to the Platypus

The Kermandie River winds through Geeveston and it is possible to see platypus there so the path beside the river has been named Platypus Walk. I don’t get to Geeveston in the evening very often which I believe is the best time to see one but I did get a glimpse of a platypus swimming once when I was walking through Heritage Park to buy lunch in Church Street.

In the past many men were employed as forestry workers and in the park there is a memorial to those killed at work.

Cee’s Which Way Challenge

I wasn’t able to get to the “Which Way” location that I had in mind so I took this photo inside a house I clean for the hospital where I work. These are the hallways in the house. It was very dark but I still managed to get some sort of photo for the challenge.

Which Way To Puffing Billy

While I was in Melbourne recently I visited the Puffing Billy Railway with friends. I will be writing a whole post about this later but in the meantime here are a few railway “Which Ways”.

Belgrave is where most people catch the train.

Which Way Around the Waterfront

Here are a few more photos from my walk around the Hobart waterfront last week. I went to Elizabeth St Pier first to photograph the cruise ship then walked around to the other side of the pier, the old shed has been converted to a hotel.

walkway next to the Somerset Hotel , Elizabeth St Pier.

This next one is more of a Which Way Not To Go as it is a private pontoon. I have never seen a No Drone Zone sign before. Definitely a sign of the times.

First time I’ve seen a sign like this.

Just in case you did not notice the big black shed that is the new Brooke St Pier.

 

X marks the spot

I was intrigued that while we have a brand spanking new ferry wharf which is getting practically no traffic the company that does the cheaper cruises has to operate out of this shipping container. I fail to see the logic.
