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 ...

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
