With a view like this beside the road it is no wonder each time we do this trip that I crane my neck to catch a glimpse of it through the brief break in the trees.

This is the magnificent Capertee Valley.

Visit the town of Capertee over at 100 Towns.


  1. What magnificent layers of green and blue that merge so beautifully with the cloud!! Aren't we lucky!!!

  2. Great scenery. I love the red tips of the trees.

  3. Certainly a view worth craning your neck for Joan ... I love the way it drifts away into the misty background.

  4. And breathe in, and breathe out.
    I can imagine myself there.
    Good for the soul.

  5. The Capertee Valley is so lovely. I have some good memories and photos from there, even though we didn't have the best weather on the trip.

  6. I wonder what it was like to traverse this before modern transportation. Must have been an ordeal.

  7. Love this carpet-covered valley and the mountains in the background.

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.
