Hospital 1 of 3



New camera or not I have a terrible time seeing photos in the city.  I kept saying to myself what would Julie, Peter or Jim see.

I'm at the hospital waiting for my husband to emerge.  I do find this hospital quite beautiful among the tall glass towers of the city.

  1. That used to be my lunch spot. It's surprisingly peaceful there. The Botanical Gardens are also very good.

    1. That would be a nice lunch spot. I make it the gardens later in the series.

  2. This is a really interesting photo -- the sort that each time you look at it, you see something new. Old and new architecture. People doing all sorts of things.

    1. It is an interesting spot. I particularly like the fountain. And the cafe served a nice lunch too.

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.

Larras Lee

We passed through Bakers Swamp without noticing anything.  Then reached our last dot on the map for this trip - Larras Lee and saw this.  The roadside monument says: In Memory of  WILLIAM LEE  (1794 - 1870)  of "Larras Lake"  a pioneer of the sheep  and cattle industry  and first member for  Roxburgh under responsible  government (1856 - 1859).  This stone was erected  by his descendants.  --- 1938 --- This is a repost from a few days ago. Thinking I would use this for this week’s Taphophile Tragics post I dug a little further into William Lee’s story, it’s a very colonial Australian one. William was born of convict parents, living his childhood years around the Sydney region. In his early 20s he was issued with some government cattle, recommended as a suitable settler and granted 134 acres at Kelso near Bathurst. He was one of the first in the area and did well. A few years later he was granted a ram and an increase in his land to 300 acres. William developed a r
