A right royal start


Royal Hotel, Spring Ridge
Royal Hotel, Quirindi
We were targeting Quirindi for our next stop because I knew there was a Royal Hotel there that I had not captured, but the one we found at Spring Ridge on the way was a complete surprise.

  1. Most rural hotels seem to be two-storied ... and usually the only storied building in town. I guess it's for accommodation upstairs and eating & drinking at street level.

    1. Yes Dianne that is often the case. I can only assume for the reason you suggest.

  2. Would it be your assessment that this would be the numerically paramount pub name in Australia? With perhaps Railway Hotel coming second?

    1. I've updated today's post (which has another Royal) with the answer to this.

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.
