At almost the half way mark, driving back from Brisbane today after dropping off 12 paintings, I passed the Wide Bay Creek bridge. I’d never noticed the name before and couldn’t help but stop and take a dodgy phone snap. It made me think that the US artists might enjoy seeing some images of where we live, so here are a couple from today’s drive and I’ll take some in mind for a post about the wee town of Mt Perry over the next week.
One of the last stints on the bitumen (tar) with a bucolic view of gums, a dam, and rolling Perry hills. The paddocks of grass are starting to brown off after mild frosts, but the grass is long and abundant in our cattle rearing region and it holds it’s nutrient for a long time.
In winter the sun is in our Northern sky. The final part of my drive from the big city crosses about 30km of dirt road over a couple of sections. It’s kept in good condition and the pot holes either side of the cattle grids are kept to a minimum. After a long drive, the dirt demands focus.
And to finish with a truly awful 70’s cultural exchange: our Olivia singing your John’s classic ‘Country Roads‘. Tee hee… click here 😀
