#98 Pyramul

Christmas is coming to Pyramul tonight and I've run out of towns!!  I will make a last effort to go west and get two more towns before the New Year.

The eye op went really well yesterday I have gone from being all but totally blind in one eye to having clear vision.  It's still a bit too sensitive to test out as a 'camera eye' but I am sure it will work very fine. 

Now I am over that fuss/stress of the eye there is much to do for Christmas so I am going to take a blog break. I hope you are all having a lovely time preparing for this most special of seasons.

I've will add Pyramul over at 100 towns and tidy up the loose ends over there during the break.


  1. That's great news Joan. Lovely shot with the church on the hill.

  2. Hope you recover soon, Joan. And a happy Christmas to you and Ian.

  3. Wonderful!
    'mazing what a difference a little zapping makes.
    Best wishes for a happy and holy Christmas.

  4. Although I'm not religious I think these humble little churches have much more to do with Christianity than the rich and ornate temples of the Old World, which I admire just as art.

  5. P.S. Glad to know your operation went well, Joan.

  6. What a super aspect, best wishes with the optics. Good to hear you are on the mend.

  7. Ah, that's what happens when you read blog posts in chronological order ... so everything is okay. That's fine.
    Have some nice quiet relaxing days!

  8. That's a beautiful shot. Christmas greetings and all the best for a good recovery from the operation>

  9. Great news. Enjoy your break and Merry Christmas to you.

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.

Blue Wren

Having finished the circuit at the zoo we settled down for a nice lunch at the cafe. This chirpy little blue wren came close to our table while his brown wife Jenny jumped playfully on the grass. Nesting swallows swooped in an out of the rafters.
Musing:The Blue Wrens and the Butcher Bird by Judith Wright
"Sweet and small the blue wren
whistles to his gentle hen,
"The creek is full, the day is gold,
the tale of love is never told.
Fear not, my love, nor fly away,
for safe, safe in the blackthorn-tree
we shall build our nest today.
Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.
They seek and carry far and near,
down the bank and up the hill,
until that crystal note they hear
that strikes them dumb and holds them still.

Great glorious passion of a voice--
sure all that hear it must rejoice.
But in the thorn-bush silent hide
the nest-builders side by side.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
