Zanci


There are the remains of the old Zanci homestead and wool shed. At the now demolished homestead they had an underground dugout where they used to escape the heat ... I wanted to escape the heat by now.

The picture above is of the old tankstand. And the old wool shed below. There is a much more impressive wool shed at Mungo, I'll show you that tomorrow.

  1. I love structures like this. The work that has gone into them. Not just thrown up. Look at the straight lines on that wool shed!

    Zanci - sounds Italian ...

    I think I would need aircon!!

  2. Looking at the map, Mungo is way closer to Mildura than Broken Hill. That surprised me.

  6. Julie, yes it's actually very close to Mildura ... a couple of hundred Ks out in that part of the world is nuthin.

    Bill, glad you are enjoying it. I'm enjoying reliving the trip too.

    JM, the old woolshed is actually just a knarled and beautiful as the tank stand inside ... I think you would have liked it too.

    Letty, I love that description!!

  7. And as always: First photo! ;-)

    The perspective and the structure of the wood is really nice - especially with the blue sky as a background.

  8. This is what I think most Americans think of when Australia comes to mind. It's an astonishing structure, beautifully wrought.

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.
