Roadside slices 2

Landscape from Cockburn to near Hawker

The day began through semi-arid land, blue green salt-bush on bare earth. However, there is interest added by surrounding mountains.

Eventually we begin to see trees again and the clumpy grasses gave way to green pastureland before we head northwards again to Hawker.


  1. Okay ... had no idea where we were so embiggened the map a couple of times to find you are about a day south of Wilpena Pound. Gee the countryside is looking bonza!

  2. I love the Flinders Ranges, even though I've only been there once. Will have to return someday.

  3. That's Australia for sure. Love the way you have presented these. The last one is super scenery.

  4. Love to see these three shots together! Wonderful colours.

  5. A perfect post, love the three slices of terrain.

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.
