If you stop on the other side of the bridge you use the style to climb over the fence and head down to the water.


  1. I know so many people who simply never close gates! No wonder a stile is necessary. The river looks delightful, as does all the lush, green grass.

    1. Silly me. I haven't thought of styles as a way to avoid gates !

  2. I can't remember the last time I saw a style.

    I like the "tiny" people in the bottom photo. It gives real perspective to the image.

    1. They were tiny. Made me realise it was a bit of a walk down to the waterworks we didn't do it. 😀

    2. Waterworks! Crikey typing on mobile phones makes my notoriously bad typing worse. I meant water just plain water.

  3. I associate stiles with walking in the UK - there are so many of them there! Good to see an Aussie version.

    1. I guess that is why I photographed it. Styles are unusual in Oz.

  4. Beautiful setting! I think I've never seen a style here...

  5. Never seen one of these (this type) of style.

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.
