Millthorpe




After a night at our camp in Blayney we set out in the rain the next morning to discover some of names on the map to the North of Blayney.

The first town we passed through was Millthorpe.  This is a great little historic town,  with good eating and the perfect spot for a weekend getaway.  As the rain was drissling down we didn't stop to take photos because I have photographed the town before.

When we were here last time we were talking to a shop keeper who said townspeople were employed at the gold mine and that it was also popular with Blue Mountains residents who were seeking the small town life that the mountain villages used to deliver before they became more populated. Millthorpe also benefits from lots of tourists being close to both Bathurst and Orange and is an easy enough weekend drive from Sydney.

Visit Millthorpe over at 100 towns and learn about its history how it reinvented itself.

  2. I haven't been to Milthorpe but looks really interesting streetscape. I like towns that tumble down hills.

  3. Drizzle with a double ess ...have not seen that before ...

    This is what I miss about no longer being able to drive. But I am sorting out dates and trains and bus trips. A case of by hook or by crook ...

    1. I spend so much time changing Zs to Ss at work - organization vs organisation that I think I typed ss out of habit.

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.
