In the early afternoon the train glided into our destination. It was school holidays so little ones were joyously meeting up with grandparents, anticipating a week of being thoroughly spoilt.


  1. This kid makes me smile - he looks so happy :-)

  2. Interesting shot of hustle and bustle. I can almost image in my mind a time-lapse where the smiling face coming toward me is the same lad trying to juggle his luggage and his pillows. I bet his Grandad took all that off his hands quite pronto!

  3. I can almost hear the sounds of the crowds. It's a very cinematic shot, JE. Bravo.

  4. The little chap in the foreground looks pleased to be starring in your blog.

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.
