Blue Hills


While Canberra is a very liveable city and I enjoyed my years there I am no fan of suburbia and Canberra is just that -- neat, ever so neat suburbia.   With a day to spend I just wanted to get out of there and head towards the mountains that form such a delightful frame to the horizon of the city.

  1. It's a good thing that the outdoors are so within reach, because Canberra can be lacking in urban pleasures.

  2. As Freddie says:
    "I want to break free"

  3. AH, see, I would have gone inward ... I feel I am at my best in the inner-city. It is where I feel the most connected ... However, Civic is not what I would call inner-city ... not like Darlo ...

  4. That's the problem with Canberra ... no heart.

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.

Musing:
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.
