Collector

Collector is a tiny village just off the highway to and from Canberra, not far from Lake George.  It's little more than a pub, a general store and the very highly regarded Lynwood cafe.

On my way home from the Canberra quilt show last winter, I detoured onto the Collector road because it was snowing, and I wanted to stop and enjoy this novelty and how beautiful it was.

Remember this?

Well, this is how it looks in summer.

Bit of a difference!

I haven't finished with the Road Trip pictures - more soon.  Thanks to Ngaire and to Jamie at Bendigo Accommodation for the lovely comments - always good to get ticks from the locals (that's ticks of approval, not the kind with rather too many legs and a habit of adhesion...!).  And to C/Quiltycat - what a pity you'd gone to visit where we'd left to visit not far from where you live!!

Very good sentence construction rooruu! LOL
We'll have to co-cordinate our travel plans in future! Am enjoying the pics of Bendigo though. You should see that Grandstand at the height of the Aussie Rules football season! C
