Roma


We didn't stay long at Roma.  Just enough time to pick up some supplies and eat a pie at the local bakery.  It feels big town.  It's booming with gas mining activity.  It also has a huge cattle sale yard but there were just a few animals there on the day.

And oh yes, I spotted a Royal Hotel among the rather nice buildings lining the main street.

  1. Nothing better than a pie in country town, and good find of another Royal for your collection.

  3. Nice to see a new Royal from your trip. I was going through some shots of Guyra the other day and realised there is a Royal there and I missed it, but it was a cold rainy day so I was only out of the car for a short time. Next time!

  4. Ray has sent in some more Royals but you might have noticed I have not been in the blogosphere much of late ... very busy ... I will put them up along with this Royal in the gallery soon.

  5. Virtually no Royals where I've been in WA - but you ARE one up on me! I've been through Roma a few times, but don't recall ever eating at the bakery!!! The shame, the shame ...

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.

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."
