Woodstock


But for the sign on the highway announcing there was a Royal Hotel we would not have ventured to Woodstock and what a treat this little town was ... a place where history lingers.  I wonder if the verandahs on the Royal Hotel have been restored yet?  My photo was taken a few years ago but more recently than this photo uploaded to Wikpedia in 2006 which shows it with its iron lace verandah.

See more of Woodstock over at 100 Towns.

  1. I had to look up where Woodstock is. Great to see some TLC is happening to a great 101 year old Royal. I guess George V was king when it was built.

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.
