The drive is truly beautiful through lovely pagoda rock country but I haven't found a way of capturing the essence of this type of country so you are going to have to take my word for it.


  1. I was in the area a couple of years ago. I only have one photo of the pagodas.

  2. Whatever you might think it still looks great!

    Why not link up one of your great travel posts to the Blog Hop I'm hosting on my blog? Look forward to seeing you there!

  3. I know what you mean. The rare photo that does justice to it is . . . well, rare.

    And yet we continue trying.

  4. Winam, that is a great shot of the pogodas. At Newnes you can get above them but on this particular drive we were at their feet looking up.

    Red I will see what I can do ... a bit flat out at the moment.

    Mary Ann, and it is such fun trying.

  5. Pagoda rock country, a fine definition to what I see here and I truly like it.

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.
