Canberra to Junee

Somewhere been Canberra and Yass

Around Canberra I usually think of the blue hills in the distance but today it's all about green hills -- the countryside is an amazing green from all of the rain.  

Let me mention that the photography on this trip is a lot different from the old Sweet Wayfaring days.  Now we have the big caravan it is simply impossible to pull over a my every whim so most shots are grabbed from a moving car and often through the tinted glass window. Add to that the frustration of the extension mirrors required for the caravan and it's mighty hard to get a good shot out of the window so I pretty much gave up in the end.

Also I am working as we go having to fit in 30-40 hours a week of work, as well as travel and a little sight seeing at each destination - this leaves little time or energy for much photography.  

However, I'm resisting looking at email as we drive along so we can enjoy the journey.


  1. Lovely green countryside Joan. Wishing you and yours a safe trip with some balancing "you" time between all that work!!

    1. Work was a juggling act all of the way. But next year I might retire and travel a different way.

  2. Green but grey and cold too. Sorry to hear that your photographic style has been crushed by a caravan.

    1. Some of the greyness is the window tint. I am not sure that the style has been so much crushed by the caravan as the working hours … I was getting a bit tired.

  3. I will really enjoy seeing your journey... specially since you ventured down out our way....

    1. Yes it was a joy visiting your part of the land.

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.
