Toogong


Toogong turned out to be a small town.  There is lots of ploughing going on at this time of year.

I've added Toogong to 100 Towns.

  1. The blue truck (? not sure what it is) hidden behind the tree is nice. Kind of an eye catcher to me. The plough in the front looks like a big caterpillar, ;-)

    1. I like them too, that's part of the fun of visiting these out of way places. Many of the names derive from the aboriginal place names. Other than that they typically were names harking back to the 'old country' wherever that was for the early settlers ... England, Ireland, Germany.

  3. I don't suppose this is a 'scarifier', is it? I think a scarifier has prongs rather than blades. That is a lot of blade-power, but the plough itself hardly looks modern.

    1. Scarifiers have prongs. This is a plough. I agree it doesn't look all the modern but not sure they need to be ... has ploughing changed all that much other than what pulls it along? Though I believe no-till farming is catching on these days as a way of managing land better.

  4. Yes, I have seen stuff on the tele about no-till farming. By that crazy bloke beloved by Australian Story.

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
