Entertainment


In the show ring the crowd were treated to stunt driving, the grand parade, horse events and more. Around its perimeter farmers yarned at equipment exhibits, sprukers peddled gadgets and local groups perfomed on the central stage.

The stunt show was popular ... good to get some tips for hooning on a Friday night.

  2. Stunt driving? This sounds great!

    Regarding your comment: the pole with the crown on top is all that has to do with monarchy in the photo, the buildings in the background are just former family private houses. Sorry if I didn't make that clear...

  3. "yarned", "sprukers", "hooning" -- there was a rumour that you guys still speak English down-under!

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.
Musing:
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."
