Watch sideshow.

We took the 35km drive down the road to Andamooka.  It’s another crazy Opal town with rough and ready dwellings  and because of the rain it was a quagmire. I do hope you appreciate these photos… my boots were encrusted with inches of mud  from collecting them.


  1. What a landscape! It looks like you have walked into a time warp and gone back 100 years. The muddy boots were worth it to get such rich photos with so much character.

  2. Yes - I most certainly do appreciate them!
    They're great.
    So many little details to love.
    How would you like to live there?

  3. Oh the character of those buildings that you've captured! Much appreciated :D

  4. Letty, no I would not like to live there. Too hot in summer and a it too rough and ready for me.

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.
