On Sunday, wanting to catch the last of the sun, we buggied into town to sit by Yass River.
A picnic rug under the towering cypress(?) pines gave us a view of the river bend. We shared the park with some young blokes fishing and a family walking their dogs.
We had grabbed a brewed coffee and baked goodies to contemplate the
late afternoon. I must have had too much caffeine in my veins as the creative flow was on overdrive and soon I was up and exploring.
I always take the Fuji with me now, just in case (…and just as well!), and these photos were the result of my latte fueled musings.
You can watch some wonderful footage from 1964, of the last days of steam for the Yass tram, by Rail Recording and Film Services (Australia):
