Which Way May 30 – Driving Home

Driving home for Which Way

I was driving home the other day and stopped at road works. I thought I would try and get some of the works in action. From there it has become part of my drive home from town, the last twenty kilometers or so. Sit back and enjoy the drive.

This part of the highway was reconstructed a few years ago. In the distance is Bakers Hill, a local name. The Baker family owned all the land both sides of the highway early last century. The geographical name is Mt Ramornie. It is not what people from overseas would call a mountain.190530_blog_challenge_which_way_driving_home6

The last creek crossing, not far now.

Onto the gravel road. It’s a bit rough as the road only gets graded and repaired once a year so make sure your dentures don’t fall out, tighten your bra straps and seat belt.190530_blog_challenge_which_way_driving_home012
The last bit before turning into my road. It’s a bit narrow so I hope we don’t meet a logging truck, cattle carrier, gravel truck or any other big vehicle.190530_blog_challenge_which_way_driving_home013

Well that’s it. The rest of the photos were of the blobs of dirt on the windscreen and into the sun. My blog header gets us in the gate.

Hope you enjoyed the ride home. Perhaps a tea or coffee and some cake or it could be wine time and snacks.

The Old Shed

Inspired by Debbie at Travel With Intent quote

“Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security
unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively, unless you can
choose a challenge instead of a competence.” —  Eleanor Roosevelt

In times past
on horseback
they rode into the bush.
It was time to muster
to check the stock.
Not a casual ride
a ride with purpose,
spending days in the bush.
Getting to the yards
check the fences
stow the gear
and the swags
in the shed.
Many days will be spent
with the cattle and horses.
Evenings
Lit by the glow of the fire
stories and tales
of the brave,
of the exciting times
and some with exaggerated imagination.
A time of challenge
in the bush.
Muster the stock
and drove them back
to the home yards
down the dusty road
to home
and a comfortable bed.
