Feeling chilly yet?  It's time I finished this walk.  I like towns where the old verandahs are still intact.  By the way, that is the Royal Hotel but I photographed it last time we were here.  We plan to have breakfast at the White Rose cafe before heading on our way.  The sun should be out by then.


  1. These old style verandahs are so functional plus they add much character - hope you enjoyed your breakfast at the white rose cafe. sounds like a super-duper place!

  2. They sure give character to a town and shade to the shoppers. It looks awfully cold and dreary. I bet a hot cup of tea/coffee was welcomed.

  3. I was just thinking that as I looked at this photo - I wish ararat had left her verandahs in tact.

  4. Yeah, I like intact verandahs, too. This reminds me of that 'Sofala' by Drysdale (was it?)

  5. Julie, I don't know the specific painting but Drysdale certainly painted images of Sofala.

  6. Your misty morning shots are fascinating!

  7. Love those old style verandahs.

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.
