Hello! Did you make it all the way to the end of the photos?
For some reason now Livewriter doesn’t let me start typing at the top any more. So here I am for today.
Some time ago we (hubby and I) took the girls for a drive to a small group of towns around here. He has business interests that he needed to see, so we tagged along for the drive. We all love a good ramble, and he knows the owners of this abandoned sheepfarm, so we felt comfortable to have a good stickybeak.
I often read other people’s blogs when they ramble, and there is so much to see in such a small space. Here where I live there are miles and miles and miles of nothing much – it’s lovely and quiet and you could drive for miles without seeing another car. This farm had a shearing shed that we assumed hadn’t been used for years, given the calendar. Yet it still had that lovely, musty smell of lanolin and sheep (those of us who live near sheep know the smell very well, it’s gorgeous).
It’s a fantastic space and it seems a shame to let it all just fall away with the weather (see the photo above of all that’s left of the shed next to it) but people just don’t have a need for their own shearing shed anymore. Way of the world, I guess.
Hope you’re well, warm, dry and safe! Take care!
