From here and back

Terri’s Sunday Stills: Views from the Road

A quick trip around the neighbourhood plus a few extras, items of interest perhaps

I know it seems like a long way but it won’t take long to get around, most of the day probably.

Further along is the little bridge that has taken lots of punishment over the years. Huge trucks go across it, it goes well under water in a flood and big holes “grow” either side so don’t whizz down the hill.

Yes there may be cattle ahead as a lot of you would know. Luckily they grow up on the roadside and are car smart. Sometimes a belligerent cow will just stand until she is ready to move sometimes driving closer works other times you might get a kick or a spin around and glare before humphing off the road.

Mostly they are nice – I know a gratuitous cow picture

Of course if you have cattle, you have a set of ramps to help load the cattle onto or off a truck

This is where we deviate to a few kilometers away. Every now and then, memorials appear for all sorts of reasons. Older ones such as this one marking the possible whereabouts of the graves of James Stocks two wives who died within four years of each other in the 1870’s
Many of the newer memorials are at the scene of a motor vehicle accidents now.

The road back home. This is an old photo when the Wattles are flowering in August. My place is on the left, drive under the Lemon Scented Tea Trees

  1. I like the picture and the written word about ‘cattle ahead.’ I guess for people who don’t have time to read. **Hey! We warned you!” 🐮

    1. Drivers slow down for the cattle grid so they have time to read the sign. The next property with open fences doesn’t have the smartest cattle. I think he just buys them to grow and sell on.
      The cows on the flats are very savvy they are the most portraits as they just stand there and look at you 🙂

  2. I Love the rural road around your property, Brian! Quite scenic with spots of remoteness. The calf and momma cow are adorable–something so fun to see along the road. Near my dad’s place in the Sierra foothills (Northern California), is a Masonic cemetery with grave markers from the Gold Rush era of the 1950-90s. Their gravestones are fascinating to read. Glad you hopped in this week for the road trip!
