Mostly there was sunshine but sometimes rain. The long drought is still too close a memory for us to not welcome rain even on holiday. We are still at Shellharbour here, you can see the steelworks at Port Kembla in the distance. Musing: From The Storm by Theodore Roethke "Along the sea-wall, a steady sloshing of the swell, The waves not yet high, but even, Coming closer and closer upon each other; A fine fume of rain driving in from the sea, Riddling the sand, like a wide spray of buckshot, The wind from the sea and the wind from the mountain contending, Flicking the foam from the whitecaps straight upward into the darkness."
Hm, to me it looks like a church that has never been used ... like people have built a church and then thought otherwise. Strange.ReplyDelete
Thanks an interesting angle Martina. One does wonder why the window frames were removed (perhaps never put in). I guess they could have been stained glass ... to valuable to just leave.ReplyDelete
"Thin" is one way of looking at it! If it were a bloke he would have a combover!ReplyDelete
I love little structures like this. I am surprised it has not been purchased by some affluent city person for a trendy home and moved as we discussed the other day. Or maybe, all the huffing and puffing would be too much for this little house made of bricks.
Tis a bit far from anywhere to suit a city person and the view ain't that great for it to be used in situ.ReplyDelete
Brick buildings are rather hard to pick up (though I have seen it done on cable TV after lots and lots of strapping and pinning so it needs to be a very significant building to be worth it).
So I reckon too much huffing and puffing involved. In fact a big puff and this one might fall down it had some pretty big cracks in the walls.
There seem to be no end of abandoned buildings in the farmland interior. I guess everyone has gone surfing on the coast.ReplyDelete
