The last time we visited Jamberoo Abbey it was mid-summer. This visit is at the beginning of winter, and hasn’t the landscape changed.
The surf was surging forth and the sky a little ominous – our walk that evening had to be a very quick and brisk one.
The pick of the season, I think – a full-blooded red, red rose.
Camelia bushes everywhere are out in force at the moment. Beautiful.
But my favourite of the moment is this spectacular specimen. It’s the first time the plant has flowered since we planted it over a year ago.
I like a bit of winter colour in the garden, especially when it’s in my garden.
Well, we have come to the end of our Explorer Country journey. To leave you, a little reminder of autumn in Mudgee. It was certainly an interesting, and scenic journey.
We (literally) stumbled upon Mudgee Brewing Co. Being a bit of a beer connoisseur, BB was very happy to buy a few bottles to taste. They brew all their beer on site.
Personally, I liked the pale ale best. And the food was pretty good, too.
And now something from the more recent past. This wonderful Art Deco theatre was first opened in 1935 and has seen many a good night out.
The post office is reminiscent of a Grecian temple! Shows the old pastoralists definitely made a few bob.
