First night

We decided to get off to a fast start and cut 130kms off the next day by spending the first night at Whistlers Rest our country retreat.  The night was chilly but we found winter warmth by the fire.


  1. No shortage of logs out there ..... Looking forward to trekking along with you.

  2. It does look warm and cosy. It is even cold up here.

  3. Ooo you have a fire in the shed.
    How's Whistler's Rest coming along?

    1. It's coming on great. We have had some extensions as well as the fireplace and put in a proper bed so is quite perfect for camping out now. Pop over to the blog and you will see how it's grown.

    2. I forgot all about that blog!
      I shall love catching up.

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.
