The guidebook says the lookout at sunset is a photographer's delight.  Well with clear blue sky sunset is a fizzer.

And it is not just one lookout, there are many lookouts but the problem is the view looks much the same from all of them. East, South, North and West ... flat, flat, flat, flat country.  We are heading out into it again tomorrow.


  1. Wow, that is extraordinarily flat country.You can see for miles.

    1. I didn't realise how flat until we got up to the top of this hill.

  2. In northern Tanzania we have the Serengeti which, in Swahili language, means 'endless plains'. This might be the Australian Serengeti. :-)

    1. Yes that is a good description for this country and other places in the Australian outback.

    1. I always think of this type of country as big sky country.

  4. It makes you feel SMALL, doesn't it??

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.
