We went down the road a little outside of town to the Berkelouw Book Barn and spent a happy hour or so browsing the stacks.


  1. Ah, now I only know the two Berks in Sydney (Paddington and Leichhardt). Berrima is looking more enticing.

  2. I haven't been to this place although I've passed it a few times. Must next time I'm in Berrima.

  3. I love these shots, and I never get round to (or see them) taking them....

  4. Jule and Winam, definitely go there, it's big and stuffed full of interesting books. Nice log fire too on cold days.

    Sean, I am fascinated for example, to see how Julie has visited the same places as me but sees totally different details. I walk around the city and can't see a single thing to shoot whereas I know you would be busy snapping away. I am learning for these different interpretations to try and push my boundaries while at the same time as being true to my own vision of things.

  5. ... and Martina is google-ing Thomas Hood ...

  6. Hi Martina, I did the same and discover he is a poet. In fact I remember now that I have quoted one of his poems

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.
