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.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
