Wallaga Lake


We've reached our destination. I picked it on the Internet because it was near Tilba and the pictures looked nice. But it turns out to be 10kms from the nearest town Bermagui, on a lake not the beach, it's a big campsite full of neat relocatable homes with nobody at home, the few non-permanent campsites are empty. With nowhere to go, nobody to talk to, no waves to look at and Pelicans landing the most exciting thing happening around here, I'm worried ... we are booked in for a week.

Over at Ann's blog recently there was a discussion about whether isolation and having nothing to do was relaxing or not.  I've got the Internet, my camera and a couple of books ... we should be fine.

  2. It sure does sound isolated!, but look on the bright side - maybe there are treasures just waiting to be discovered.
    I trust you have a wonderful healthy & safe 2012.

  6. I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.

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.
Musing:
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."
