March is here.
I love March, the weather is not so humid, still hot, but bearable. Also in 2 weeks time we will be travelling again. I’m excited at the thought. AND it is my birthday month, actually Jack and I have our birthday on the same day so double the reason to celebrate.
Not having a car we have not been on many trips lately, but this weekend friends took us for a trip over the border to a small rural village with the strange name of Tyalgum. It is situated close to the rim of Mount Warning, the world’s largest extinct shield volcano.
There I found an old style village and benches every where, and they were all wooden. Excellent, as wooden benches is the theme for March.
Next door is a second-hand book shop.
I spy another bench…
Interesting windows too. I love the colour. I’m sure Dawn of “Lingering Look at Windows” will like this one.
Further along the street is “Flutterbies” I am gong to have a quick peek in here, it looks interesting.
Did you notice the couple sitting outside having lunch? She had a very distinctive fashion style, very 1950’s.
This village is famous for its Community Hall as the acoustics are excellent and every year a “Classical Music Festival” is held here in September.
I enjoyed the day out in the country. Come for a stroll around with me. Here is a gallery of some of the other places around this village.
Jude of “Travel Words” loves benches and she would like us to share any benches we find on our travels in her “Bench Series”, I hope you don’t mind Jude but this week I have combined the benches with Jo’s “Monday Walks“, and even slipped in a window for Dawn at “Lingering Look at Widows.”

excellent combination of themes – and the orange doors had me thinking of the wpc too -=ha!
and the fashion lady shot was cool – those heels – and the slip under the dress – such a sense of the lady was given – enjoyed that – also the stroll and nice wooden bench find….also – is that a hand laid stone wall in the one photo (2nd hand book store) – looks old and very rustic….
