Reflections on the Tamar River.

Update on my Dad. The link to my first post.
So the update is that he is now in the main hospital in the city where I live which is much easier for me to visit him.  He isn't travelling well, and we don't know how long he's got with us.
The Dr's are trying to keep the pain away but it's proving to be difficult for them and my dad.
Dad still has his sense of humour, and he said to me two days ago, "I tried to die last night, but I couldn't"!

The Tamar River (indigenous name: kanamaluka) is a 70-kilometre (43-mile) with the mouth being at Low Head which goes into Bass Strait. Tasmania.
The River is very near our small city, and one can walk beside the river, take a cruise or dine at the eating houses near by.

I took these photos just before sunset on a calm winter's day and was lucky to get a reasonable reflection.

  1. Hello,

    It is all so very stressful for you at the moment with your father. However, at least now he is closer to you for visiting, so we hope that eases the difficulties a little at least.

    The photographs are so very peaceful and calming. Just what is needed in your life at the moment. Do not forget to take care of yourself too.

  3. It's very important your dad is at your place you can visit him as often as you want. Your dad is a great man because in his terminal condition he has a good sense of humour. I am with you and your dad although I am far away. God Bless you. Take care in the most difficult period of your life. Hugs. Gosia

    1. Yes, amazing sense of humour for an old man, however some days he's crabby which is to be expected.
      Thank you also.

  6. It's good the hospital is close, I knew a guy who's dad had a heart attack and it was about 100 miles away. So he kept driving back and forth for several days.

    1. It is Adam, it's only 10 minutes away.
      That would be a drag travelling everyday that far. But you do what you have to do.

  11. Glad to hear that your dad is closer now. Sorry that he is in pain but what a champ to be able to joke at a time like this. It is an awful disease. Thinking of you both.
