And of course there is the fair share of crafty stuff, basketware, and gourmet pantry foods for sale and heaps of lavender in the gardens.


  1. I like Berrima, even if it is on the touristy side. Lots of interesting things in those antique shops. And I like the jam and sweets shops too!

  2. I am not keen on touristy stuff either: even when I am the tourist. I think I prefer Berry to Berrima though ...

  3. I like both Berrima and Berry but they don't present the same style of photo opportunity ... more of a browsing and eating thing.

    I especially like the big barn of an antique shop where I photographed the bottles ... lots of wonderful old linen and household things. Not my husband's favourite place.

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.
