We set off in search of a warming cup of coffee. Nup this shop won't do ... closed.


  1. Kind of sad - very melancholic photo - to me at last.

  2. Wonderful balcony! Is it closed for good?

  3. Wow! What a photo: especially the palette.

    Love the tumble down, moss-covered fence ... love the fading sign ...

    What vantage point did you have to capture this?

  4. I don't remember taking any special vantage point. If I remember rightly there is one street higher than the other and this is just the natural view you get when you look back towards the lower street.

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. Musing: 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.

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.
