Day is done

As the sun sunk behind the dune we made tracks back home to our camp. Another wonderful day is done. And that's it for this trip.

We are going back to Blue Mountains Journal for a week to meet some more people of the mountains before returning for a train trip to Dubbo.


  1. Interesting isn't it, what can make a very evocative photograph? A feather, a scattering of tiny shells and some scraps of vine. Enables me to smell the salt ...

  2. This would be great as a framed photo in a larger format. Yes, as Julie said ... . The title is great and now I am wondering if Australian birds undress at the end of the day *bg* ..

  3. Beach combing is one of my most favorite things to do. Doing it with a camera is just as satisfying. You must have had a wonderful trip.

  4. Another beautiful combination of pastel colours!

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.

Blue Wren

Having finished the circuit at the zoo we settled down for a nice lunch at the cafe. This chirpy little blue wren came close to our table while his brown wife Jenny jumped playfully on the grass. Nesting swallows swooped in an out of the rafters.
Musing:The Blue Wrens and the Butcher Bird by Judith Wright
"Sweet and small the blue wren
whistles to his gentle hen,
"The creek is full, the day is gold,
the tale of love is never told.
Fear not, my love, nor fly away,
for safe, safe in the blackthorn-tree
we shall build our nest today.
Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.
They seek and carry far and near,
down the bank and up the hill,
until that crystal note they hear
that strikes them dumb and holds them still.

Great glorious passion of a voice--
sure all that hear it must rejoice.
But in the thorn-bush silent hide
the nest-builders side by side.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

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