Weekly photo challenge: Home

This week’s photo challenge has taken me on quite a journey! Just recently I asked my son what does he say when someone asks him “Where did you grow up?” In reality we moved about quite a bit. It has always been an adventure and I hope the positives have out weighed the negatives for my lads. Here is a sample of some of the places I have called HOME over the years!

The first house I remember in my home town is looking very sad these days, however I believe it is currently being renovated! I lived here until I was about 12 years old.

15 Channel St Cohuna

We all spent hours and hours playing on that front “lawn”.

Around the time I started High School we moved to a different house at the other end of town. I lived here until I left home at 17.

My son is enjoying himself at Nan’s house. That home was really the central focus for all the family when Mum and Dad were alive.

The Weir is a focal point in Cohuna – so many memories there. It was always fun to be on the bridge and watching the water rushing through.

This is an aerial view of Cohuna. You can see the football oval/show grounds in the centre.

The Murray River is the border between Victoria and New South Wales. I have a strong affinity with the River as it played a big part in my growing up.

When I left Cohuna I went to live in Melbourne. Here is a shopping Mall in Melbourne. The old “shot tower” was kept as a feature in the new building.

Flinders Street Railway Station in central Melbourne. I worked quite close to the Station however I used to catch a tram to and from work.

A few years later we lived in Belgrave in the Dandenong Ranges. Puffing Billy is a tourist train – very popular with the kids 🙂

Bedford Kitchen – my most attractive house! We enjoyed a good six years there. It had an amazing kitchen!

We had lots of barbeques with friends and family on the patio outside the Bedford house.
