The fun things of old!

Years ago a group of us went to Coles Bay when it was free to enter that town on the East Coast of
Tasmania.  We arrived about midnight, set up camp only to find in the morning that the tent door was facing totally the wrong way :) Well we were anxious to get to bed the night before.

Someone decided to take a photo of me before I could comb my hair or wash my face, but it doesn't matter.
We all hopped into the Ski Boat that we bought with us after breakfast and went fishing way out to sea, it was calm then the next minute it was very rough so we headed for the beach and made it.  One of the motors decided it wasn't going to work, but the other one still did work so all was well.

The camera was the best we had at that time :)






A photo of me in Hobart years ago at one of my cousins house.  It was at the time when long dresses/frocks were in fashion and at that time I made all my clothes, that way I could have a lot more.  I used to buy a pattern my size, make the dress, hang it up in the wardrobe and no altering was needed.  Can't say the same these days plus it's cheaper to buy clothes now, as the quality is not in the fabric that is available to buy.

  4. Good pictures even if they were taken with an old camera. We just love long dresses but they are unfortunately no longer considered fashion. Only for special occassions.

    Greetings,
