The dots

Out here the dots on the map are wheat silos beside the railway line.  Sometimes there is a small cluster of houses and shops, other times nothing more than a railway siding and a few sheds.

These are the silos at Tullamore, a small town (population 200).


  1. For some reason, whenever I see wheat silos, my mind fills with mice, mice, mice; mice everywhere WITHIN the silo, trying to run up the inside.

    And no, the only thing beside my computer - other than the mandatory cat - is a 375ml bottle of water.

    1. Crikey, I was wondering what you were drinking.

  2. Silos are an icon of country towns I mean dots.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
