Looking for Yarrabin 3 of 10

Goodie, an abandoned building with a windmill thrown in for good measure.


  1. A rural retreat - secluded location - fresh mountain water....what more could a person want!

  2. Like a lot of old people, it looks a bit unsteady on it's legs!

  3. Ah, a typical Australian country scene - just perfect. It's nice to travel and it's also nice to come back to our beautiful land and sweet, clear country air!
    Thank you kindly for your comments while I've been away - they were much appreciated. Susan xx :D)

  4. And a tankstand ... and pilings that have set to swaying.

    Is that a kookaburra on the hip of the roof? Or a maggie ...

  5. Haha! 2 of my favourite things!! Now ... if only there was an old fence post front and centre ...

  6. This is lovely! Great find, Joan.

  7. I love the things readers notice ... the unsteady legs, the magpie on the roof. The front fence is missing but I was careful to include the back fence in the crop because it framed it in some way.

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.
