The Murray

We got our first look at the great Murray River at Euston and camped beside it at Mildura ... but as we plan our return trip to be along the Murray I'll save showing you the river proper until then. We've got our trip to Mungo National Park and another river to see first. We start out that way tomorrow.


  1. I really like the light and shadow of the first picture. The milky quality of the water made me think it was fog at first.

  2. I like the small pieces of floating vegetation.

  3. I agree with Tulsa Gentleman, though at first I thought of an explosion.

  4. I visited Mildura for the first time this year.
    After driving through scrubby mallee country, arriving in Mildura was positively tropical.
    It reminded me of the Gold Coast.

  5. I loved the colours of the vegetation and the light on the water ... thought it made an interesting abstract. It seems you guys liked it too.

    Letty, I found Mildura to be a particulary attractive city. And as you say a huge contrast to the surrounding landscape.

  6. There is a nice dreamy feeling to the first shot.

  7. The colours of the vegetation are gorgeous. That "green" goes so well with the colour of the soil.

  8. That's the think out there ... you are so much more aware of the soil as well as the vegetation as the soil shows through.

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.
