Abandoned 1

Time to take a drive and look around to look for things abandonded and beautiful. I'm not quite sure what to make of the drainage system at this place.


  1. It is strange. It does not seem delapidated. Just a building made from old materials. Is that a Rheem system they have the guttering sort of slanting down to? Wierd ...

  2. Interesting - that's what we do here, too. Collecting the rain water from the gutters in barrels and use this water mostly for watering garden plants.

  3. Oh, now I'm envious. I really, really wanted to make a rainwater retention system for our house in St. Louis. But then we moved and that dream was left behind.

  4. It's not rainwater harvesting that is unusual ... every rural property would do this for the drinking water in their home. What I don't get is the collection tank (which looks like an old hot water system) or the tin can type funnel at the top.

    Not sure about it being a house either Julie but there looked like a backyard dunny nearby which could make it a house. However, there were the remains of an old dwelling (brick chimney) nearby also so it could have been the shed.

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. Musing: 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.

Royal Hotel - Grong Grong

But wait, no trip is complete until a Royal or two has been added to the collection.  This one is at Grong Grong.
