Monday morning

The centre of Canberra, known as Civic, never seems busy but on Monday morning it was very empty, just a few lonely black coated figures out in the cold.


  1. I always think that about Civic - think the action is in the malls nowadays!

  2. Civic is sterile, IMO. I have just booked a night in Canberra for second week in October. Wanna watch Question Time, go to the Art Gallery and to the War Memorial. By train it is only $28 each way.

  3. I agree Civic is a sterile place. I remember when I first went to Canberra I caught a bus from the hotel in Woden where I was accommodated to go and explore the city. After a bit of a trip I was sitting in the bus waiting for it to move on and the drive said to me ... where are you going ... Civic I said ... you're here he said. Could have fooled me.

    It has not improved much with the passage of 37 years.

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
