Mandurama, on the road between Cowra and Blayney,  is one of the very first towns that caught my attention  just because for the beauty of its aging structures.  Its Royal Hotel also featured in my very first Royal Collection post.

I've been holding off on posting Mandurama because I hoped to get back there and particularly the nearby town of Lyndhust because I've heard it has a Royal too.

See more of Mandurama over at 100 Towns.


  1. Gorgeous photo - going straight over to pinterest.
    Love that ironwork.

  2. You know I'm a big fan of those railings.

  3. I guess the refreshments are no longer available.

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.
