We reached Limekilns, another place that is no longer a town but at the edge of the road is a farmhouse that looked to me very much like it would have once been a wayside inn - it turns out to be the former Rising Sun Inn.  There was no sign of lime kilns, I think they went a long time ago.

See more photos of this building and some other things we found at Limekilns over at 100 towns.

I've also posted two new Royal hotels contributed by Red Nomad.


  1. It is amazing how many dead or dying towns there are in our country.

  2. You are building up a great list of names. Love Mt Horrible from yesterday.

  3. Lovely little window! Well spotted.

  4. Like those two new Royals, so different each from the other. Port Fairy is such a delightful place.

  5. This little window is so so so ... English. Does not appear to be designed to let in any form of Australian weather whatsoever. Very JaneAusten-ish ...

    1. Yes but the full photo over at 100 towns reveals the verandah which is so so so ... Australian (or antipodes)

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.
