Looking for Yarrabin 2 of 10

We passed by a shady creek.  OOo I like rocky creeks like this. This road has promise.


  1. rocky creeks are wonderful - love the way this one curves off into the distance.

  2. Ooh. I like this, too. So calm and investigatable...(spelling/make up word???)

  3. Beautiful spot! I would sit there and listen to the sounds of Australian nature.

  4. I'd love to be there, shoes off, feet in the water.

  5. Ah ... see those banks over yonder? Follow this creek futher up into the hills, as the banks get shorter, and the water clearer, and maybe the temperature a little lower ... then just sit on the bank's edge ... and when the light begins to fade, you may be favoured by a platypus.

  6. OOo I like these photos of yours!

  7. Investigable ... what a great word. And if as Julie suggest a platypus might be at the bank definitely worth doing.

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."
