White Rose Cafe

It was cold and wet and the whole train load made a bee line for the cafe opposite the railway station.  In no time there was moaning and groaning about the speed of service -- the city types clearly hadn't read the sign.  "We sell good food not fast food."


  1. Bloody city slickers ... grrrr ...

    Now look at that fabulous counter ...

    What do you mean about the Dunedoo train trip? Ooo ... a teaser ...

  2. Memory lane thanks. White marble table tops?

  3. Wanderer, no white table tops, and eclectic mix of antique tables.

    Julie, not so much the train trip as the destination.

  4. Looks like a great spot to wait!! Thanx for visiting my blog!!
    Happy travels...

  5. That counter IS fabulous.
    And so are those floor tiles.
    I love the muted tones.
    And was the food good?

  6. Letty, we only had coffee and a biscuit.

  7. Bet they'd make a mean mixed grill!

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.

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."

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.
