Looking for Yarrabin 8 of 10

A great new addition to the abandoned collection.

[I've reposted this because the original image was crocked and drove me nuts every time I saw it.]


  1. Windows weren't such a big deal back then, were they?! Just as well, I think it makes for more interesting photos!!!

  2. The one on the right looks like it might not have guttering. Is that a banana chair out the side?

  3. I think they both have guttering and it is junk outside not a banana chair.

    I think these are shearers quarters so not much time to spend looking out the windows anyway.

  4. A great new addition it is. And I love the stting.

    Regarding the 'decay' posts:
    No, I haven't jumped. There are 10 posts (XL to XLIX) on the series.

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.
