Today I took a meander around Forest Creek Mine..just out of town and a step back to the days when men were made rich or mad by their search for Gold.
Behind the mine the Prison..which was not there when the gold days were thriving..i am sure they are not breaking rocks in there though!
As much as there are old relics left there I wanted to focus on the environment at the mine..i had hoped to spot a Wallaby as we had walked the pups there last night and I didn’t have my camera on me..I think perhaps the Wallabies were hiding due to the sounds of work at the prison…I may go back on dusk another time and see if I can spot one..smaller than roos and darker with a pointier little face they are incredibly sweet.
Anyhow I captured some nice things as today we have a stunning Autumn day 22c sun shining and glorious day for a poke around an old mine!
The child in me really wanted to get down in the bottom of the cliff face and climb on the old pipes …but I fear I would get in a bit of trouble and yours truly could end up in the prison behind the mine!
I went off the ‘path’ as it was and at one stage got a little lost…a middle aged woman with a pony tail and pink ribbon..last seen scrambling through the bush hahaha…I do need to grow up!
Hope today you can see something beautiful in a past life near you..you may be surprised at just what history your own town has!
