#96 Newnes


Newnes is a relic town with plenty of relics.  Those who follow my Blue Mountains blog might remember a tour of the shale oil ruins that I showed a couple of years ago.  Of the town that used to be the old hotel is all that is left.

It is in the beautiful Wolgan Valley overlooked by the cliffs of the Blue Mountains which also now hides a six star resort.   You can enjoy it for $2000 a night or camp for free down the road. Either way I am sure you will enjoy it.

I will post Newnes as town number #96 at 100 towns sometime soon.

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.
