This summer 3 of 10

Lake Oberon

The dams and lakes are rising higher but the big ones are not yet full to the brim. The council's website says it's currently 63% capacity so still a way to go.

  1. Loving this series already!! And just think - only a few years ago the residents would have been BEGGING for 63% at this time of the year!!

  2. Joan I finally have a Royal Hotel for your page tomorrow. Do you just copy the picture from the web?
    These shots take me back to my honeymoon which we spent in Jenolan, Bathurst, Hill End and Mudgee.

  3. Red, I know and that is why I have a fascination with watching the dam levels and reporting the figures ... because it is a bit hard to tell how full it is other than the fact that there is still a "rim" around the edge.

    Mark, send to the email address in my profile and I will post it. We spent some our honeymoon at Jenolan too. Or if you are posting on your blog I will copy from there.

  6. It's been a long time since I've been to Oberon. Nice to see it so green.

  7. Ooo ... I have found another Royal for you too. Must go and photograph it over the next few days.

    Those dams will probably rise a bit higher next week ...

Reading

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.

Coolibah?

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.
