Train travel


I really like the ads at the railway station, gives me something to look at while I wait.  I like the Opal cards too, so convenient. But quiet carriages can sometimes be a bit of hazard, some people get very agro when someone makes a noise and start making a bigger noise themselves.

  1. We certainly waited a long, long time for those Opal cards. Melbourne and Brisbane had their version installed years ago.

    1. Took a lot of time and money. I can't quite figure out why.

      Was talking to the station master this morning. The older folk are transitioning to Opal Ok. Apparently much better than when they stopped selling tickets and forced people to use machines.

  2. Great capture, Joan. I love the sense of movement you get from this perspective.

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.
