Big country


We went into Parkes to pick up some petrol.   I think of Parkes as being where the big wheat, big sheep, big sky country begins.

Our next port of call was to be Forbes.  I settled on this diversion to our route because I had found out that we missed a Royal Hotel last time we passed through, and what better reason is there to visit a town?

  1. It sounds like you're in Montana, it's all of those things you describe. I would hate to think you would miss one of the Royals. Maybe a book of Royals?

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.
