Up the Castlereagh

It's been cold, even snow about, and the winter wattle is out.  It's time we took off and found someplace warmer than here.  

Shall we turn left and go home or right and roam?

Go right, northwards up the Castlereagh, to places old and new.  

weeeeeee … we're on our way


  1. Looking forward to this new journey.

  2. Well this will be interesting! Can't wait to see your road trip.

  3. I have just started reading Don Watson's "The Bush". I think he wrote it just for you.

    1. I am reading it too. But slowly. It is in my pile to read when I am relaxed and with time on my hands and there has not been a lot of that lately. About a quarter of the way thru.

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.
