Lilies at Christmas
Christmas in Australia. The photo I acquired of the Internet and it's 'free'.
The Lilies from my garden are in bloom and the garden does look colourful.

Old digital Photos 1998
Old digital photos. I really can't recall my first digital camera certainly had one in 1998 as the photos below were taken with it. I somehow remember having an earlier camera with the resolution so small and nothing good to store the photos on only floppy discs - remember those?
Both of the Brisbane Street Mall - looking south, looking north

Campbell Town, Tasmania
Campbell Town is about 70km south of Launceston Tasmania. It's a nice place to stop and have a rest when driving to Hobart. Campbell Town offers coffee shops, grocery store a park, a pub and nick knacks along with a few other things. Population is about 750 to 800 people and is a friendly rural town with farming being the main business in the area. My 2nd great grandfather coming as a free settler in 1854 from Kilkenny, Ireland with his wife and a few children to live in a place behind Campbell Town called Isis River which is in fact just a river and a farm or two. 2nd great grandfather grew potatoes in this area and extended his family, but not satisfied with his crops he moved to Tunnack, Tasmania further south east where he remained until his death in 1880.

Oh well I forgot to do a post for Friday so Saturday it is. Thought I would share some ocean/sea photos of The Friendly Beaches on the East Coast of Tasmania.
I love this beach, the sand is silky and white it goes through the toes so easily. The sea itself is a beautiful colour in reality and it's a long beach in a National Park area to get to it. So a park pass is essential. The beach is never ever crowded.

Thought I show you a couple of mountains. The first being Mt. Roland which is 1,234 meters high 4048ft so it's not a high one. Mt. Roland can be seen from afar along the north west coast of Tasmania, the mountain is inland. A Doctor from Adelaide in South Australia killed his wife up there some years ago.

That's 'him' waiting patiently for me whilst I walk over the old bridge to take photos. Certainly no place for caravan parking.
Oldest stone span bridge in Australia built by convicts the foundation stone was laid in 1823, bridge finished 1825. I've shown pictures of the bridge before but never shown these from 2015.

A poem cleverly written.
Saw this poem the other day it's appropriate for anyone who drives a car with a passenger. I hope you enjoy reading it till the end :)
