There was a magazine that came out in our local paper today promoting the business of Swan Hill and how we are moving ahead. Well at least some on the local council think we are. The magazine didn’t grab me all that much, until I came across these photos….
We think they must have been taken around five years ago. This first one shows the industrial estate we are next to. It isn’t as bad as it sounds. There are no smells and only a little bit of noise and to be honest we don’t even hear that very often.
The house on the bottom right hand corner is ours. No not the one with the trees around it the next one. You will see it more clearly in this photo.
If you work from the front left of the photo ie the road, you get our house, the big shed, then Mum’s unit. Hers has the fence around two sides of it. On the right hand side from the front is the garden, the vegie garden and chook shed and the small shed. The orchard is situated behind it and the dam.
The trees on the right (the very thick ones) are our nice neighbours. You can’t see their house very well, but it is a mud brick. I think the only one in Swan Hill. The house on the left are the neighbours that aren’t so nice.
The drive now goes along in front of the trees you can just see at the front of our block (they are how huge and totally block us from the road) and comes out on the nice neighbours side.
I’m sorry the photo of our house isn’t very good. I scanned them in from the magazine, and while I could enhance the main photo, I think because I have enlarge the second one (of the house) so much it won’t come any clearer. Still it gives you some idea of what our land looks like. I would love to get more arial photos taken just to see the changes.
