Not the big dunny


It's grain country so there are silos.  Would you believe the sign in the town says "In 2001/2002 a proposal was made to build a 'Big Dunny' in the main street with the idea it would help put Dunedoo on the map and help promote the town's unique name. The proposal was abandoned after public opposition."   Whew.

By the way, the name Dunedoo apparently comes from an aboriginal word meaning Swan.

  1. Haha! I actually think the 'Big Dunny' would have worked as a tourism drawcard!! But maybe not the type of tourists they had in mind!!

    Happy travels!!

  3. Go the good sense of the folk of Dunedoo!

    Love these silos. My idea of a country town symbol.

  4. While driving around the US this summer I spotted large silos quite often, and now I really want to see the inside. I don't understand how they work--how the space is utilized. That's something I want to learn some day.

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.

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.

Musing:
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."
