Beach stuff

I like the way the beach creates it own ever varying works of art.


  1. The sea, to me, is more determined. Whereas the bush is laid back and cool about detritus, and change and dropping bits. The sea wants to get in there and reduce everything down to its essence: rumble, smooth, toss.

  2. Can't wait 'til Australia Day. No pressure, though, no pressure ... *grin* ...

  3. oh yes.
    Most excellent beach stuff.
    I find the beach is always good for a skeleton or two also.
    Fish, bird, crab shell, cuttlefish.

    BTW - do you remember you mentioned a while ago you would like one of those cake display covered thingos. I saw some at Aldi today - $20. They look quite a lot like this plastic one of mine.

  4. Beautiful. And I agree. The beach creates beautiful art!

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.
