Post Office

Here is the old post office which like so many post offices these days is not a post office.  One half seems to be a private residence and the other side is a real estate agent.

Rylstone began as a rural centre in the early 1800s. In the 1870s and 1880s substantial stone civic, commercial and religious buildings were built.  These give the town its special character. Today the entire business district is classified as a Heritage Conservation Zone.


  1. oh, I would love to live in an old post office. It would be fun to transform it into a living space.

  2. It is amazing how old these country towns are.It is a lovely old building and it is good that the business area is protected.

  3. That's terrific. I love seeing these buildings from yesteryear.

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.
