Pictures from places I've lived.

These pictures are all taken somewhere near where I have lived at

Some of you will recall that I posted at holtieshouse about the aroma
of coffee that I sometimes get from the Nestles factory near my house
in Gympie.

This photo is taken on a 10x zoom setting from my back verandah, it
shows just why I can smell the coffee if they are processing when there
is a breeze blowing my way.

This one shows the house and some of the sheds at our farm at
Maryborough all reflected beautifully in the dam.

There has also been a few posts at holtieshouse about this 14 year period.

The lovely little seaside town of Tin Can Bay was home for three years, this
was the first three years after my marriage to Julie broke down, so while I
think of it as a lovely spot, I still can't say I was totally happy there.

This is sunset from the back verandah at Gympie, the Nestles factory is in
the left hand corner of this one.

Here Boston, our Kelpie sheepdog stands on the bank of the dam waiting to
see where his "mother" the motorbike was going to tell him to go, shearing
shed and sheep yards are behind Boston, as are some of our paddocks.

Kelpie's are a very intelligent working sheep/cattle dogs, we got Boston as
a small pup from a neighbor, it didn't take him long to work out that he
knew more about sheep than I did, so until I found that he would follow
"instructions" from the Ag. Bike, we were often at loggerheads about how
best to move our sheep around.

WOW, that lake is just like glass, wonderful reflection.

The sunset looks like the sky is on fire. Thanks for sharing those!

Hi Peter ~~ Great photos and memories.
I like the one with the dam, and also
the one with Boston ~~ because they have
some lovely gum trees in them.
Cheers, Merle.
