Bookshop 1 of 3




I quickly tired of the department stores and headed to something more to my taste ... Dymocks bookshop.  I am thinking of starting a series on books and bookshops ... will have more success with that than city lines I reckon.

  1. It's so sad that the number of bookshops in the city have wittled down in recent years. Hopefully Dymocks is here to stay.

  2. Fortunately most of the good ones are still around.

  3. I love Dymocks, but have never been to their coffee shop. I must admit that nowadays I mostly take the escalator down to "children's". I am prepared to buy adult books online, but hardly ever children's ...

    1. I tried ebooks but at heart I am a book collector and ebooks just are not the same.

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.
