Hidden hamlets


On the way home from Bathurst we decided to tick off a few more dots on the map. Would we once again be surprised to to find hidden hamlets beside the highway we traverse so often?

Walang turned out to have a modern real estate development but further down the road that rambles along beside the highway an older history could be found.  I think it is a while since this community hall has been used. In fact everything was old damp and mouldering down this road, more tomorrow.

  1. It is sadly remembering the country people enjoying the Saturday night dance within its walls.

  2. As sad as it is, I think this is a wonderful photo that says a lot.

  3. Back ... back ... back to the primordial sludge ...

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.
