One building making a statement on the town is the Museum which was formerly a Methodist Church. It's architecture is unusual in Australian church design.  In 1919 the owner of the cement works donated the cement to build the church on one proviso, that it was in style of the church from his home town in America.  The parishioners were not too keen on it but nonetheless agreed.


  1. It does look unusual architecture for an Aussie country town. It looks neat poking out above the trees. Nice capture.

  2. A church! It actually looks more like a castle!! Maybe the builders were multitasking??

  3. I can just imagine what the people of the town thought!

    I think I would prefer to go without, than accept the money with those strings.

  4. Oh I like it!
    And look at ALL those beautiful trees - there's so many.

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.
