Geurie


Hooray it's a town.

Geurie turned out to be a small town with shops, a hotel (not a Royal), swimming pool, homes and historic buildings.  It even has a daily railway service because it's on the Sydney Dubbo XPT line.

A large grain silo looming large beside the railway line has my heart sinking a little however, I plan to visit 13 dots on the map this trip and what are the chances that lots of them turn out to be nothing more than grain silos beside the railway line?

Visit Geurie over at 100 towns.

  1. The railway is really a lifeline in the country, isn't it? They seem to die a little (or a lot) when the train no longer stops there.

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.

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.
