Saint Johns church a beautiful blue stone building in the 1800's and from our very famous local blue stone
A picture of a thousand words but while it is a beautiful scene under the huge trees around here it shows us that there is very little water left in the reservoir in fact it could run out in just a few short months that is if no rain comes between now and then.
This wonderful and skillful work is the via duct over the now dry river and there are some 8 arches all made from blue stone and built during the depression the work is so well done and it stands as a reminder of the skills of those men who had very little in the way of tools and machinery. This is part of our Heritage here. Our railway station built in the same blue stone we are famous for here in Malmsbury in fact many of Melbourne's oldest buildings built in blue stone you would find stated their lives in the earth here until it was dug up and used to build buildings like this rail station.
This is the entrance to our gardens (malmsbury gardens) not mine! and the large pond in the middle is now dried up and the ducks are not happy however any time of the day you can see families taking a break from their long road trips in our park, children on swings and parents enjoying the sunshine and a picnic.
I see I have some meme's to do and will get right to them (see says with a smile) very soon thanks to those who sent them to me.
I look forward tonight to go and look and to catch up on all your blogs tonight but just want to thank you all here so so much for your friendship and kindness in the past couple of weeks with first me then Rob being rather sick.
This is my Wednesday......I hope you can enjoy yours its on it's way.
