Then we roll into the town of Denman ... a place of great note because it is the town of fellow blogger Julie's childhood and has a new Royal Hotel to add to the collection, one of the smartest ones we've seen.


  1. Yee-hah ... I was last in Denman in 2002 when my brothers and I took Dad to stay on our old farm which now has two 'farm-stay' cottages on it.

    I moved to Denman in 1956 aged 8 and attended Primary school there before travelling to High School in Muswellbrook where I completed the last Leaving Certificate in 1965 (the HSC commenced in 1966). I then went to University in Newcastle where I boarded. My father left Denman in 1971.

    It is a very handsome pub, I agree. The Denman Hotel is on the other diagonal of that same intersection.

  2. A nice looking Royal and a drive down memory lane for Julie.

  3. Yeh I know the Denman Hotel is over the road. I saw that and couldn't for the life of me see the Royal for a while .. not that I didn't see it ... I didn't see it's name.

    Boarding ... that's a blast from the past ... do kids do that anymore?

    Denman is a perfect place for farm stay cottages. The rural scenery is beautiful around there and of course the vineyards etc.

  4. What a big collection you already have! This one is great, lovely building.

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.
