This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt is of a young lady in a boat on a trip to nowhere.
I found a couple of boat photos in my Nanna’s album.
The first is of Nanna beside the Titanic – a classic little model.
Mum thinks she is probably on one of the dams on the family property in Beeac, in Victoria’s Western District.
They are probably on Lake Keilambete a popular boating and fishing spot for the family.
Lake Keilambete (an Indigenous name) is one of Victoria’s crater lakes located just north of Terang, Victoria towards Noorat.
The third is of Nanna, her sister in law and their four children on the Queen Mary, their pet name for their big old dinghy.
The vegetation looks like they could be somewhere on the Mornington Peninsula (SE of Melbourne) where we spent many childhood holidays.
My mum (with the long plaits) is in the centre, sitting on the edge. Her cousin, Ian looks like he is pretending to row.
I was thinking that dinghy is a strange word so looked up its origin. Here’s the explanation from the Webster Dictionary.
