Ben Bullen

The next spot is a small community of three or four houses rather than a town. The road takes an unexpected turn across the railway line at Ben Bullen and the derelict railway station is clearly visible from the road.  In the vacant lot over the road from the railway station there is generally a fruit and vege seller who has recently been joined by people selling honey and other local produce. And the other recent addition has been the dog coats you can see hanging on the line.

I am bemused by the way the modern day dog is into fashion and beauty.

There are more images of Ben Bullen over at 100 Towns.


  1. It is amazing how dogs are becoming fashion statements.

  2. A community of three or four houses? I presume there are no secrets there... :-)

  3. Nice to see the local community taking advantage of the passing track. That road can get a bit busy...

  4. North Florida is largely rural so I understand these small communities. They just want a simple life.

  5. A dog coat seller? I wonder how many they sell?

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.
