We are back down by the lake overlooking where there is the rather nice sculpture showing Cook's journey in the Endeavour.

That is the end of this tour and tomorrow we go wayfaring somewhere new.


  1. I'm reading cook's biography at the moment. He certain had some epic journeys.

  2. Umm ... I have not seen this in person yet ... shall have to wander from bridge to bridge on my next visit ...

  3. It is just to the left of Commonwealth Avenue bridge coming from Civic direction ... overlooking the Captain Cook Fountain.

    if you are going to stay as Olim's it is going to be quite a walk to Commonwealth Park!

  4. Winam, I am not reading anything but over the Christmas holidays perhaps I can rectify that.

  5. Last time I walked from the Hotel Kurrajong, via Defence to the AWM and back again ...

  6. Great background for this sculpture. I thought it was the ocean... :-)

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.
