Homecoming


A state border is after all just a line in the dirt so why should it make such a big difference?  The houses grow stilts.  The roads get narrower.  The way towns are laid out have a familiarity to me a country town Queenslander by birth and upbringing.  I have never been to Cunnamulla but I feel strangely comfortable.

I find it a little disconcerting.  I didn't expect this trip to be a homecoming.

  1. I've always liked those Queenslander houses, they are built for the climate, not like our brick ones.

  2. I like Queenslanders too. But I suspect they would be a little too airy in the winter time.

    1. You are right, they are way too airy in the winter time. The mornings are quite frosty and chilly even though the days are generally warm.

  3. Once a Queenslander always a Queenslander. I grew up in Sydney and when I visit familiar suburbs it feels like a homecoming to me too.

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.
