  2. Whenever I look out over a landscape like that from up on high, I wish
    I could spread my wings and soar out over it.
    Have you seen this fellow who zooms around on a motorized paraglider?
    I saw him years ago in a National Geographic magazine and ever since then
    I've dreamt of having a go.

    1. No I haven't and I am almost too scared to follow the link ... I don't like the idea of soaring like a bird on a fragile bit of flying equipment.

      I followed the link anyway ... there is no way i'd dream of doing that ... it would be a nightmare.

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.

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."
