The Cotter 1 of 2


We ended our drive at The Cotter.  The dam on the Cotter River was built to provide drinking water for the  new city.  A popular picnic area is located at the base of the dam wall.  I like this spot with its extensive plantings of exotic trees beside the clear stream.

  1. Yeah, it is lovely, and the old couple make it so warm and inviting. I know it is bleak and winter, but you know what I mean. One of the problems with being a single is the inability to enjoy this sort of singularity.

  2. What a perfect place for a picnic lunch - I would imagine this would be a real haven for bird-life.

  3. It sure is a pretty spot. Too cold for me to picnic.

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.
