Warm spots

It was with delight that we found Quirindi a relatively warm 16C - warm enough to sit outside in the afternoon.

The caravan is a relocatable office. I need to work 5-6 hours and be in touch with email most of the day so the trip is all about touring to warm spots with mobile coverage, and just a little sight seeing squeezed into the few spare hours of the short winter days.


  1. Lovely to see you back on the road again Joan. You have a beaut set up for these cooler days. Enjoy yourselves, and it would make working just that much more pleasant :D)

    1. It sure is more pleasant. Maximums of 27 degress vs 7 degrees. It's like a summer holiday.

  3. I think you've got it right Joan. Hubby says look out for dinosaur museums in Winton, Richmond and Boulia.

    1. Richmond and Boulia are not on our agenda but Winton is.

  4. Not a bad office.
    Are you going to Winton?
    Are you going to go to the dinosaur museum?
    I'd love to hear about that.

    1. We hope to but there will be a lot of posts for you to read before then.

  5. I admire your gumption to try to work and tour. Bill used to do it when he was running his own business. I remember having to find top of hills to see if he could get mobile coverage. There is a great lookout there with a funny name. "Who'd have thought lookout"

    1. We missed that lookout. I had very little time to research the trip and we have little time of local exploration. But one thing we did decide was that the area aroudn Quirindi is very nice and close enough to home to take in on a long weekend so we will be back.

  6. How fabulous that you can work and tour. Now to reduce those work hours. :)

    1. It doesn't pay as well as being a corporate slave but makes up for itself in pleasure.

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.
