We dropped into the cafe at the Tidbinbilla tracking station for lunch.  This and nearby Honeysuckle Creek played a part in the moon landing in the 1960s.


  1. An interesting place - quite imposing to drive up to it.

  2. This is amazing! I think I had the same feeling looking at the photo as the 'apes' did on the first scene of Kubrick's "2001: a Space Odyssey". :-)

  3. I loved visiting this spot - but we got attacked by wasps out on the verandah.

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.
