Ooops ... am I breaking the rules again?

  1. That might depend on what ammumnition you use.

  2. Hm, I do not understand this at all: who writes this in white paint on some rocks? He? Now this is quite exotic for my European mind ...

  3. Martina, actually the rules on the official sign were "No stopping, no passing, no shooting". So the sign writer was just mirroring the thoughts of the "management".

    Country lads like to go out at night in trucks mounted with spotlights and shoot kangaroos, foxes and rabbits. Given that there are camp sites all along this river that would be extremely dangerous.

    Australia has very strict gun laws so in general it is only farmers and the like that have them. Other than in the rural areas there is not a culture of gun ownership at all. No shooting signs only ever appear in rural areas.

  4. Hm, but couldn't they have done a nice graffitti instead?
    And I read "No sooting" which doesn't make any sense at all, ;-)

    In Germany the gun laws are even more restrictive I suppose - so there are no opportunities for "No shooting" signs.

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.
