Pets at Rose Court

Pretty cat... Afullah just doesn't like the cute look.


Here, this is better the ferocious look.


And Katherine? She is glad not to have that screw in anymore! I am waiting for the updated X-ray. Here is the old screw she used to have. Look at my poor wife, she's not looking happy.

Ambo station on Foreshore

This is where Katherine works, the Ambulance/Fire station of Devonport.


The Mersey River in front is generally very quiet, just a few regular boats go up and down on rare occasions. Here is the Searoad Tamar passing the Spirit of Tasmania...

Devonport Airport


Yes guys, this is it... our airport. Think twice before landing here! Nay, it is OK, really it is. Even though it looks like a bus-stop and the average Greyhound Station in the USA is bigger than this... Posted by Picasa

Spirit of Tasmania


Can you imagine The Spirit 'chucking a Uee' here? Well, it does! The brown facade that says RIVERS shows where Rooke Street Mall is, our main shopping street. The yellow shed is our cinema, the C-Max, with The Golden Arches next to it. Posted by Picasa

Rouse Court from the Air


Andrew Naunton took me for a spin in his plane, so we flew above our house! Spot the black roof and the Pintara with the kayaks on top (right bottom). Posted by Picasa
