By the lake


We are driving through familiar land, past my favourite lake on the way to Mudgee.  I say goodbye to its lovely waters and the undulating hills, wondering if I will find any on the way that please me quite as much as these.

We are in a new car which tows our van like a dream but it's giving me photography problems.  The windscreen tint is much darker than our old car so photos through the windscreen have a nasty colour caste.  And when I try to take photos out my side window the bigger rear vision mirror gets in the way.  I have to put up with these limitations because we are heading to Queensland where the roads can be narrow and verges steep,  so there is no chance of getting the van to pull over.

But there is a lot of New South Wales to go through first.

  2. Didn't you just get a new car?!
    I know what you mean about those big mirrors - Mum and Dad's car has those.
    Be careful going around round-abouts, Mum had her view obscured by the mirror and got collected.

    1. We've had this car for a couple of months but this is the first big tour with it so my first time trying to grab photos in transit.

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.
