Cottage


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.

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

  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 ...
