Our weekend drive took us to Walhalla approx 2 hours from home in Gippsland north of Moe.
The old gold mining town with a now population of 20 was founded in late 1862 where it was once populated with around 4,000 residents.
Walhalla Star Hotel opposite the Bandstand.
Interesting wall of this building, as it is close to the Baw Baw Ranges snow fields it is adorned with snow skis and apparatus.
On weekends, the Lone Piper climbs to the top of the mine to play for the visitors of the town.
The beautiful old Post and Telegraph building.
Restored Elliot's Live and Let Live Bakery.
Collection of old suitcases at the local railway station.
Interesting local cemetery on the side of the hill.
The Fire Museum.
The Walhalla Goldfield Railway crossing the Thomson River.
Thomsom River Dam.
In the early 80's when I worked for the Geology department of the MMBW, I was sent for 2 weeks to the dam as it was being constructed. I worked in a little hut at the bottom of the dam drawing the geological plans. Sadly the dam has not fulfilled it's maximum storage.
This morning was taken up with a tidy of my sewing room.
As I no longer do quilting on a major scale, I have no need for a lot of fabric. Have passed majority of it on to others who can use it. My new interest of paper has resulted in boxes of various types.
I was given an early Christmas gift (thank you Jeanette for your suggestion of the storage).
As commented while John made it up, "Mr Ikea has a brilliant design strategy".
The storage drawer set on wheels is from Ikea, called "Alex". Fits perfectly under the sewing trestle.
It holds all my papers for book making and journaling.
Even my noticeboard received a tidy.
A suggestion was made, perhaps shelving on one side in the wardrobe?
