MY WORLD ~ St Arnaud, Victoria

St Arnaud, a sleepy little country town aware of its history
and with a sense of pride in its surroundings.
Main street in the heart of town.


Through a glass darkly, its erstwhile fire engine!

*


In front of the fire station, the very solid red letter box and
across the road the lovely colonial Botanical Hotel looking across
some very well kept Botanical Grdens.


On a side street, another relic of times gone by, the watering
trough for horses and probably dogs as well.

*
All in all, a charming township to pass through and stop at
the gardens on an alternate route between Adelaide and Melbourne.

The world is full of interesting nooks. Click on the logo and see
for yourself.

A big thank you to the MY Wold Team for creating and keeping
this great meme going.

  9. Such an interesting place!
    I marvel about the water trough with the smaller one for dogs. I have never seen one that took care of the smaller creatures too.
    There are a few places in Vienna where restaurants have a Hunde-Tankstelle by the front door, any passing dog can have a drink there (no tips).

  24. Hallo Arija, die guten alten Zeiten. Ich hoffe man bewahrt die Vergangeheit und lebt darin gemütlich.

    Ja ich habe einige Kakteen. Es waren früher mit den Nachzuchten über 3000, heute sind mir ca 1000 geblieben.

    Gruss Hartmut
