That's the Grampians.  I really want to see them and obviously the train is not the way to do it so we will have to come back this way again some day.


  1. I would have recognised that profile ANYWHERE!

  2. I would love to go the Grampians as well. Red from Oz has some terrific posts about them.
    Another fortnight another flood, still raining, we are all so over it up on the North Coast.

  3. You must . It is a beautiful area. Great for walking, driving and camping but the trouble is everyone in Victoria thinks the same thing.

  4. The good old Grampians - how I do love them.
    When you visit - go in November - lots of native flowers.
    And travel the road from Maroona to Dunkeld - you get a wonderful view of the expanse of the mountains.

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.

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.
