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 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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
