This summer 3 of 10

Lake Oberon

The dams and lakes are rising higher but the big ones are not yet full to the brim. The council's website says it's currently 63% capacity so still a way to go.

  2. Joan I finally have a Royal Hotel for your page tomorrow. Do you just copy the picture from the web?
    These shots take me back to my honeymoon which we spent in Jenolan, Bathurst, Hill End and Mudgee.

"Sweet and small the blue wren
whistles to his gentle hen,
"The creek is full, the day is gold,
the tale of love is never told.
Fear not, my love, nor fly away,
for safe, safe in the blackthorn-tree
we shall build our nest today.
Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.

that strikes them dumb and holds them still.

Great glorious passion of a voice--
