musing July 05, 2007 Just uploaded more images and feeling fine. Probably the third glass of wine helps. Thank you to the RB community. You all have inspired me to do better, be creative and glad to share. Be good or be careful. new gear » Journal Comments gaypony over 9 years ago will do. glad you hav’n fun mick8585 over 9 years ago Hey gaypony where is Zeehan? Enjoy the images. Ozcloggie over 9 years ago Good old Google! (Now. Put the cork back, in the bottle! Have the rest tomorrow. Be stronger than me!)************* Zeehan, a fascinating historic town on the B27, near the midwest coast, of Tasmania. (THank you, Abel Tasman.) This was once a booming silver-mining town known as ’silver city’ – for a time it even had its own stock exchange. It also had a lot of bars, a thriving theatre and a rollicking social life. Much of its jaunty history is preserved – the Gaiety Theatre is restored to its former glamour, other buildings of the old mining town are still used, and the Pioneer Memorial Museum (the former School of Mining) has a great display of transport, mining equipment and minerals. When you’ve identified the local minerals you can go fossicking for your own gemstones – or just go fishing at Granville Harbour or Trial Harbour. Empress over 9 years ago And Zeehan’s cold. There are very few trees. Ozcloggie over 9 years ago Thanks for your comment, Mick(?). My eye had fallen (ouch) on Zeehan because, zee is Dutch for sea, haan is Dutch for rooster/cock. The people in my picture are my (late-) mother, then 39 and my father, then 39 (90, next week) and myself, in between. Yes. That proves it. It’s not a picture that I took but have had for more than 50 years. B.t.w., as told in my journal, rather than Applecross Perth, we disembarked, in Port Phillip Bay, May, 1956 but did not stay in Melbourne. mick8585 over 9 years ago I have been through there in my travels I think. I guessed from your signature you have Dutch heritage. The unkind around me prefer clogwog as the term. How is the painting going? Are you in NSW?
