It's raining again!  And we discovered that we left some things back that the motel in Wellington.  So it's back up the road to collect them.  The upside is we can use a different road and tick off a few more towns.


  1. lol, sometimes it's hard to find an upside to things - but you did!
    A beaut rainy pic :D)

  2. I have loved your shots over the last week. I see that you have lots more rain coming.

    1. Sure have, been drenched in water this week. And we've been camping!

  3. This is what I miss about not being able to drive. The total freedom ...

    1. Yes I can understand missing that. I am finding it so lovely to just look at a map, find a cluster of towns I have not visited then draw a path between them connecting up the dots. I'm loving the 100 Towns project.

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.


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.
