Birrawa


This weekend we went wayfaring in a concerted attempt to reach 100 towns before the end of the year.

Birrawa is a small settlement flanking the road between Mudgee and Gulgong. There is a big grain silo there and some very sad old homes and buildings. I wan't sure if this was a community hall or a church.

See more of Birrawa over at 100 towns.

  1. My 1st thought was also a sad shot.
    Also agree with you that those vintage caravans look great but I wouldn't want to holiday in one.

  2. The quiet colors and varied textures of this photo are really appealing. At least those are natural materials of wood and metal decomposing, something on the order of logs and rocks breaking down.

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.
