Here we are at Clandulla (population 350) and our own bush block Whistler's Rest (below).  

I will take you exploring some of the towns in the district next but in the meanwhile, if you want to know what Clandulla is like please follow the story over at my blog Whistler's Rest.  I am showing a map of the town today.


  1. Ooo that looks way too lovely to scrub out.

    What did they blot out on the sign?

  2. Clandulla used to belong to the Rhylstone-Kandos council which has been merged into the Mid-Western region managed out of Mudgee. I suspect the sign said something about the old council as I notice all of the ones in the district have the bottom bit covered over.

    There are still council offices in Rhylstone a sort of branch I guess.

  3. It looks all fresh and clean green.

  4. Of course it doesn't have the h ... but my fingers invariably type it anyway.

  5. Joan. I can't find an email address on your blog so I will use this space. I have just discovered how to put Tab pages onto my blog but it says you can put ten on. However, I have got to number six and it won't show as a tab even though it is on the list of pages in the editing section. Do You know what I have to do to make the tabs smaller so all ten can show?

  6. ooo ... how exciting! I wait with bated patience ...

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.
