Northfork


As the sun began to set we backtracked from Baldry to Cumnock which I have shown previously in this blog.  I spotted this rather nice shot on the way.

I think it might be a while since mail was delivered at Northfork.

Visit Cumnock at 100 towns.

  1. You can tell that winter has arrived from this shot and the brown grassland. Glen Innes to the west of Grafton had minus 7 the other night.

    1. Oh yes Glen Innes is a freezing cold place -- in the mornings at least.

  2. Glen Innes ... I remember that name from my father's yarns.

    I do like this shot, Joan: the angle of the sun, the weariness of the sign, and those sad, delapidated cottages. Very NSW ...

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.

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.
