Bushranger country


The countryside around Eugowra is very rocky.  We were travelling along Escort Way, and quickly got the idea that bushrangers once lurked behind those rocks.

Visit Eugowra and learn of its history over at 100 Towns.

  1. The bushrangers sure liked the rocky granite country, so I'm sure they would have hidden out if there was something to rob!

    1. The autumn colour has not been great this year so it was nice to catch some looking good.

  3. I don't know much about our bushrangers. I must rectify that. Shan't live long enough.

    Is there an apostrope in shant/shan't? I guess it is 'shall not' so maybe it should be "sha'n't" ... looks like a swathe of fly droppings.

    1. Not sure about bushrangers ... they are just criminals .. though I guess the same can be said of convicts.

      Your musings about "shall not" amused me. I looked it up and alternatives are shan't, shalln't and shan'n't. I can't believe anyone would use that last one.

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.
