St Laurence's

Down in the centre of town is a more traditional church. Unlike nearby Rylstone, stone buildings are rare here.  In fact the shops and houses in Kandos are an assortment of cement, ash brick, cement render, fibro, hardiplank, timber, brick and very occasionally stone which gives the town a mish-mash charm not found the in the endless brick suburbs of the city.


  1. "mish mash charm' - I like that. The suburbs are boring I will agree. Except for my suburb.

  2. All those names for building materials, I'm sure there's an American counterpart for each one but yours sounds so much more interesting.

  3. It is a cute little church, just like you draw.

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.
