Coal


The power stations are of course associated with coal mines.  We are driving through an area known as the Western Coalfield.  I've noticed signs for the Springvale, Invincible, Ivanhoe North, Airly and Baal Bone mines. That's Invincible that you can see behind the truck below.

  1. And this pales into insignificance when you travel through the Hunter! But, it can only be dug out once.

  2. Ours are full of water so these ones will get more business.

  3. Julie, you are right. But I wonder if we dug it all out whether we would then have to think of something more creative.

    Diane, I hadn't thought about that.

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."

Over the road from the rose gardens in Bendigo, a beaut second hand bookshop.
