Evan's Crown

Our orginal plan for the day was to visit Evan's Crown Reserve where there are great grantite rocks but the we decided to just drive around because of the rain. We'll go back there one day when I am feeling energetic and walk up to the top.


  1. Reminds me of Easter Island to some strange extent ...

  2. mmmmm, I can see a tenuous connection. Saw a doco on Easter Island on the weekend, a fascinating story. It would be an interesting place to visit, especially with the camera.

  3. A camera can make the dullest of places interesting! It is all in the detail. I dont know about you, but I get to see so much more when I have a camera on my person.

  4. Yes I agree, a camera makes me stop and notice and as a result I get much more out of life's experiences.

    As I am essentially a landscape photographer this is the case.
    Though I suspect street photography has a way of making the photographer notice people more as well.

    Not sure if I was at a party and snapping away whether I would enjoy it as much as just talking my head off.

  5. You just have to watch this video Das Rad, a short animation about the evolution of man from the rock's perspective.

  6. What sort of a rock is it that does not like moss or lichen!!

  7. I thought the moss would give you a smile.

  8. This is fantastic! Also like the framing.

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.

Blue Wren

Having finished the circuit at the zoo we settled down for a nice lunch at the cafe. This chirpy little blue wren came close to our table while his brown wife Jenny jumped playfully on the grass. Nesting swallows swooped in an out of the rafters.
Musing:The Blue Wrens and the Butcher Bird by Judith Wright
"Sweet and small the blue wren
whistles to his gentle hen,
"The creek is full, the day is gold,
the tale of love is never told.
Fear not, my love, nor fly away,
for safe, safe in the blackthorn-tree
we shall build our nest today.
Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.
They seek and carry far and near,
down the bank and up the hill,
until that crystal note they hear
that strikes them dumb and holds them still.

Great glorious passion of a voice--
sure all that hear it must rejoice.
But in the thorn-bush silent hide
the nest-builders side by side.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

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