Looking for Yarrabin 3 of 10

Goodie, an abandoned building with a windmill thrown in for good measure.


  1. A rural retreat - secluded location - fresh mountain water....what more could a person want!

  2. Like a lot of old people, it looks a bit unsteady on it's legs!

  3. Ah, a typical Australian country scene - just perfect. It's nice to travel and it's also nice to come back to our beautiful land and sweet, clear country air!
    Thank you kindly for your comments while I've been away - they were much appreciated. Susan xx :D)

  4. And a tankstand ... and pilings that have set to swaying.

    Is that a kookaburra on the hip of the roof? Or a maggie ...

  5. Haha! 2 of my favourite things!! Now ... if only there was an old fence post front and centre ...

  6. This is lovely! Great find, Joan.

  7. I love the things readers notice ... the unsteady legs, the magpie on the roof. The front fence is missing but I was careful to include the back fence in the crop because it framed it in some way.

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.
