The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog -  My Bright Field  - to record the delights of my new life adventure. If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

Royal Hotel - Grong Grong

But wait, no trip is complete until a Royal or two has been added to the collection.  This one is at Grong Grong.


Trains, old and new, are another favourite with us so we checked out the Goldfields Railway before heading back home to Lawson.


At the Read Heeler bookshop in Echucha their thing is dogs.


With me begonias come a close second to roses.  The begonias in Ballarat are awesome.
