Foxwood Farm

On the way home we stopped to eat at the Cafe at Foxwood Farm at Running Stream, where the fire was warm and the home made pies simply delicious.  This is going to become a familiar haunt for us because the big news is we've bought a bush block in the small village of Clandulla which is a stone's throw from here. In the New Year I will be blogging all about it.

In the meanwhile that's it for this trip, a new short trip starts tomorrow.


  1. Love the names Foxwood Farm at Running Stream. Sounds like a nice spot to visit with those home made pies and warm welcome!
    Congrats on your bush block and thanks for sharing a good trip :)

  2. That's so exciting.
    I can't wait to see all you new adventures at the bush block.
    How big is it?
    How will you keep the grass mown?
    A sheep?
    A pony?

  3. You are easing from spring to summer and we are easing from autumn to winter. I like summer better.

  4. Thanks for the trip through your eyes and camera. That is exciting news you are going country. I'll have to go to google maps and find the spot.

  5. A donkey?

    Does it have a Royal?

  6. Hi everyone, one acre, no animals and too small for shops let alone a Royal Hotel. We will only be visiting occasionaly until we put a shed on the property.

  7. This is a gorgeous spot. I look forward to your future updates.

  8. bush block?

    Since I am so late with commenting I thought I should google this before asking. Here is what I got:

    - bush blocks for sale
    - bush brokers
    - lifestyle bush block
    - managing your bush block
    - how do your clear bush block


  9. Hi Martina, a bush block is a block of land which has not been cleared. It has native vegetation on it ... trees, shrubs, wildflowers etc.

  10. Joan Elizabeth, thank you! This made me click on the "life style bush block" --- seemed to be a contradictio in adiecto ;-).

    Have some nice quiet days and a all the best for the New Year! And thanks again for answering me during your hiatus :-).

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.

Blue Wren

Having finished the circuit at the zoo we settled down for a nice lunch at the cafe. This chirpy little blue wren came close to our table while his brown wife Jenny jumped playfully on the grass. Nesting swallows swooped in an out of the rafters.
Musing:The Blue Wrens and the Butcher Bird by Judith Wright
"Sweet and small the blue wren
whistles to his gentle hen,
"The creek is full, the day is gold,
the tale of love is never told.
Fear not, my love, nor fly away,
for safe, safe in the blackthorn-tree
we shall build our nest today.
Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.
They seek and carry far and near,
down the bank and up the hill,
until that crystal note they hear
that strikes them dumb and holds them still.

Great glorious passion of a voice--
sure all that hear it must rejoice.
But in the thorn-bush silent hide
the nest-builders side by side.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
