Menindee Lakes


As the day draws to a close we pass by Menidee Lakes, now flowing with water after the inland floods of last year.

We soon settle into our bunks to be gently rocked to sleep.

  1. Gorgeous shot!
    Love that thin line of trees (?) between the lake and the sky.
    Can I put it on my Tumblr?

  2. When we first visited the lakes in 2010 nothing prepared me for the vast size of them. That was a good year too - they were full, and the spectacle was awesome!

  3. You are lucky to enjoy being rocked to sleep. It was the rocking that kept me awake. The Menindee lakes is on my bucket list.

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.
