A diversion


My brother convinced me that, having gone all this way, we really should take the diversion to go and see Carnarvon Gorge.  So we decided to take the 500 kms round trip to see what all the fuss was about.

Our port of call for a couple of nights was the small town of Injune.  Once again the caravan park was chock-a-block.  Here grey nomads were supplemented by that other growing breed of caravaners -- the mining people.  There is gas mining going on here abouts.

  1. I guess you'd never expect a Caravan Park way out there to be full ... times have changed.

  2. Cute steam engine!

    Looking forward to Carnarvon Gorge. I have had family and friends who have been there and it looks fab.

  3. I don't think that train is going too far...
    Amazed about how many travelers out there too.

  4. I've been to Injune and Carnarvon Gorge over 30 years ago. Can't really remember Injune but Carnarvon was fantastic. Look forward to seeing the shots.

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.
