In our attempt to find amusements I would have liked to walk around the town streets but it was raining all the time and we didn't have umbrellas.  It is a typical town with a mix of old and new homes.  This cottage near the railway station was probably once the station master's cottage.  I reckon that's an impressive cactus in the front yard.

I don't actually like cactuses but I was getting desperate for things to see and do.


  1. wow that is an impressive cactus !

  2. I like the lounge on the veranda.

  3. I am totally distracted by the gorgeous huge cactus, it's a beauty!

  4. JM, I thought I you when I photographed the cactus. I knew you would like it,

  5. I think that quite a few beers would have been consumed on that front verandah over the years.

  6. Don't you love the pitch of the roof?

  7. wow - with this cactus in my frontyard there would be no more frontyard left, ;-)

    Julie's comment reminds me of something I heard or read sometime: beer is a good fertilizer ... perhaps the cactus ...

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.
