Wollar

s

The day I visited this town it was the day I made a decision to go find a little laid back country town like this and buy a property. And a year or so later we did, you can read about it over at Whistlers Rest.

So Wollar has held a place in my heart.  But in researching a little of its history I find it likely doesn't have a present let alone a future.  It was bought out by a mining company a year ago!

See Wollar as it was over at 100 towns.

  1. I hope there are no worries for those who used to live there.

  2. This is one of your towns I've been to. Hope the mine doesn't wreck the village (and your serenity).

  3. I really like the photo with its "no worries" and smiled seeing it. Than I read your post - a company buying a town. I am just reading the Telegraph article, I didn't know about these things before. Strange. And sad.

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.
