Wrap up

We wrapped up a thoroughly enjoyable day with afternoon tea before heading home.

That's it for this trip. Time to see what's happening over at Blue Mountains Journal. Then in a few days we'll be back here for a visit to the beach.


  1. Ooo is that lemon pie? I love the way they set out food. Can't come within a bull's roar of that myself ... and always leave a mess. But that is what food is all about!

  2. Very pretty with the decorative strawberry. Well worth a photo. I hope it tasted good, too.

  3. Yes lemon pie but my husband's choice so I don't know how good it was. I'm with you Julie, I can't make my servings come out like thatn(even when I have a strawberry AB) ... hence my interest in photographing them, they are like some sort of mysterious wonder to me.

  4. My favourite.
    You're off to the coast now!
    You go on lots of adventures.
    Are you camping?

  5. We have an A-van camper which is a step above camping but not quite a caravan.

    As for getting out and about, the man who sold us the A-van said not to let it be a "garden gnome" we are taking his advice.

  6. That pie looks delicious--and is making me a bit hungry :)

  7. Love the food porn :P But food styling is certainly an art.

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 - Ganman

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

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
