Canberra

Canberra - Ausrtalia's National Capital
View along Anzac Parade from the War Memorial to Parliament House.
We spend a lovely winter weekend in Canberra recently and among other things visited the War Memorial.  It reminded me of a story I wrote when recording my family history 12 years ago so I dug it out. The text will be much longer then my usual posts but may amuse the Baby Boomers among us.

The story is titled "Lest we Forget". I will spread it over the next week and a bit as I take you around the War Memorial.

  1. This is a grand view. I am always affected by it. Looking forward to the tour and the story.

  2. I'm really looking forward to this glance back in time.
    Love the pic of Canberra - such wide streets.

  3. Haven't been to the War Memorial for a long time. It will be good to be taken around by you.

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.
