Senuous scenery

We are on our way to the last small town of this tour.

From Miss Killmansegg and Her Precious Leg. A Legend by Thomas Hood.
“Who hath not felt that breath in the air,
A perfume and freshness strange and rare,
A warmth in the light, and a bliss everywhere,
When young hearts yearn together?
All sweets below, and all sunny above,
Oh! there's nothing in life like making love,
Save making hay in fine weather!”


  1. Curves like this are sensuous, aren't they? This reminds me of scenery down Cooma way - except there it is punctuated by large rocks in the paddocks.

  2. Yes it is like the scenery down that way. We lived in Canberra for 10 years and I used to enjoy driving around that countryside as much as I like going west over the mountains today.

  3. This is another shot that could have been taken at southern Portugal in summertime! Amazing resemblance, except for the haystacks.

    Regarding your comment, Hell's mouth is not a blowhole, it's huge, pretty scary and dangerous when the sea is not calm as in the photos.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

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.
