Looking for Yarrabin 10 of 10


We bump along a while longer and come to an intersection which is another dot on the map called "Twelve Mile". It's just a sign post to Wellington and a couple of other places.  Oh well that is two "towns" I can cross off my list.

A bit of googling when I got home revealed on page 10 that Yarrabin was once a small village with a shop, school, hall and church but there is nothing there now. I'm so glad I didn't look that up beforehand, we would have missed this delightful drive.

I've added Localities at 100 Towns

  1. A delightful little spot Joan .... Just the perfect place for a picnic amongst the blue.

  2. I suspected that Yarrabin might not exist anymore, oh well as the cliche goes, 'the journey is more important than the destination'.

  3. Love the photo. And the story. The road less traveled....

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.

Musing:
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.
