The abandoned

This is my abandoned shot taken for this trip.  We are on the road out of Molong heading towards Yeoval and Cumnock which are both Royal Hotel towns which I have shown before.

Speaking of Royals I have just added into the gallery a new contribution from Red Nomad OZ  who seems to have covered every inch of this country in amazing travels.  The new Royal is from Mt Hope somewhere between Hilston and Cobar. I would like to drive that route sometime.

On this trip my husband asked why we were detouring via these towns, "You didn't like Yeoval last time," he said.

I responded, "Well you never know there might be something different to see."


  1. It looks strange with the trees undressed. Not used to that here. The cows are enjoying the winter sun.

  2. I really like seeing the old, abandoned buildings you capture. So interesting to look at...all those textures.

  3. Haha!
    Can you see the tuft of hair on that cow's head?

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.


Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.

Royal Hotel - Grong Grong

But wait, no trip is complete until a Royal or two has been added to the collection.  This one is at Grong Grong.
