Its the same house as yesterday.  Worth a repeat I think for the silvery weathered wood and wintery grass in the low sunlight.

We are not too far from Yeoval.  Visit Yeoval at 100 Towns.


  1. I can sense of peace and quiet as the sun slowly sinks in the sky leaving that wonderful soft golden glow ..... A beautiful capture.

  2. Silver with a touch of gold. Nice framing.

  3. I like this better than the day before. I like rural neglect for many reasons.

  4. I like rural neglect AND urban neglect. They are both a magnet.

    Look at the angle of the roofing here. It is very erect. Am I right in thinking more so than normal in the NSW countryside? I wonder why they want to capture more air in the ceiling cavity - temperature control? Perhaps simply because they like the design ...

    1. Yes the pitch of the roof does seem higher. Perhaps they came from Europe and the snow and didn't realise they were not going to see any here. Like older houses being oriented South instead of North.

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.
