I'm back

We've been on the road seeking sunshine warmth and Royal Hotels.  Come along with me to discover where we've roamed and what we've found on the way.


  1. Looking forward to following you. I think we went to a few places the same. It will be interesting to see a different take.

    1. Yes we have covered some of the same territory. I've used your blog for insights.

  2. Welcome back, Joan! I envy you for having visited the Great Barrier Reef, it's one of the places I would love to go before I die. Where are the photos? :-)

    1. Ha ha JM you are going to have to travel through a couple of thousand kilometres to get there!

  3. Hello again!
    Did you find any sunshine?
    Seems to me there ain't been nuthin but rain lately!
    I've rediscovered the joys of mildew!

    1. All sunshine. We've not had a single rainy day in a month!! Just one day with slight drizzle but the rain in the north is so warm I don't mind getting wet.

      Oh yes mildew ... such a Queensland thing.

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.
