Renamed Royal

Royal Mail Hotel, Braidwood

As you know I always have my eye out for Royal Hotels, I found one here. Apparently it was the Royal Hotel but was renamed the Royal Mail Hotel for the filming of the 1970s film of Ned Kelly.  This is a heritage town, perfect for a film set.


  1. Another beautiful pub. Never been to Braidwood so looking forward to your photos.

  2. I like that one. so much more atmosphere than modern glass and chrome.

  3. I like the roofline here. Not sure about the colours for an old pub like this. Think they under-cooked with the signage.

  4. umm ... go on ... add it to your Royals ...

  5. i like the colours and look, no advertising. Every time I want to take an old pub it is usually adorned with plastic adds flapping from the balconies.

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.
