Canary Street Clandulla 7 of 7


We've reached the railway line towards the end of the street. Though the station is abandoned the line is still used daily for a coal train from the Charbon mine.

That's it for our street. I hope you enjoyed the walk.  I didn't show you much of the houses but let me say that it's a mix of tin sheds, low cost demountables and kit homes, ancient patched up cottages, and  a couple of brick houses.  Every place seems to have an animal or two. We saw cats, dogs, goats, a calf, horses, hens and rabbits as well as wild birds -- wrens, finches, willy wagtails and parrots but no canaries.

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.
