Northfork


As the sun began to set we backtracked from Baldry to Cumnock which I have shown previously in this blog.  I spotted this rather nice shot on the way.

I think it might be a while since mail was delivered at Northfork.

Visit Cumnock at 100 towns.

  1. You can tell that winter has arrived from this shot and the brown grassland. Glen Innes to the west of Grafton had minus 7 the other night.

    1. Oh yes Glen Innes is a freezing cold place -- in the mornings at least.

  2. Glen Innes ... I remember that name from my father's yarns.

    I do like this shot, Joan: the angle of the sun, the weariness of the sign, and those sad, delapidated cottages. Very NSW ...

  3. Wonderfully composed shot! Great light 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.

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."

Book Now

Over the road from the rose gardens in Bendigo, a beaut second hand bookshop.
