Queensland


We decided to pop over the border to Queensland for a very brief visit to the tiny town of Hebel … not much more than a few houses,  a pub and general store where we had afternoon tea.

  1. I drove through Hebel once ... if we hadn't been in a hurry we'd have stopped for a look!! I'll put it on the list for next time :D

    1. Sadly there is never enough time to stop at all of the places. That is what I loved about my 100 towns project I did some years ago ... I actually stopped and looked at each of the towns, not matter how big of small. I would like to do a project like that again.

  2. Yeah, do a project like that again. Was it really "a number of years ago"? How about "A River Runs Through it" ...

    1. Trying not to put on any more weight so will give that one a miss. I have thought of all sorts of ideas but nothing that I can quite settle on. Life seems so much busier at the moment.

    1. Inter sting that you should suggest that because it is an idea I have been playing with. We were at Bathurst information centre a few weeks ago where they have a restored Cobb and Co coach. I picked up maps of the routes to see if a new project might come of it. Haven't had time to look over the maps and form a plan yet.

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.
