Bathurst


At the heart of this gold mining region is the city of Bathurst, a bustling business centre today that has much of its rich history reflected in elegant old buildings thst appear throughout the city.

It is a lovely city, see more of Bathurst over at 100 towns.

  1. It's my wedding anniversary today. On our honeymoon we stayed in Bathurst in a B&B just like this. We never planned to stay in Bathurst but a terrible experience at Jenolan Caves Guest House saw us flee. We were always glad we did it as Bathurst is a beautiful city.

    1. The Caves guest house is romantic but its fortunes rise and fade ... I've stayed there twice, once on our honeymoon and another on a wedding anniversary both were pleasant experiences but I know it has been very dodgy in between.

  2. I have not been to either locality for yonks. But, as I noted earlier, I have Bathurst in my bucket ...

    This photograph could have been taken in just so many streets of Paddington.

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.
