I went to Hervey Bay over the weekend, and this is just getting warmed up:

No rust but a few people seemed to enjoy the previous ones.

Nice mini house on wheels!
There is a 'hippy' bloke lives in Tallarook makes 'em - he has three in his backyard. Will probably have to live in one as he has to rent his house out to keep his head above water. One of 'em is built over and in the back of a ute - tiny, tiny space!

Hi Banfilli did you manage to get any photos over in Ireland?

I was on a road trip last week and saw so much rusting junk everywhere, it seems like every third resident in rural areas can't tell "yard art" from "fly tipping". The endless string of historical villages were no exception; they should paint things they don't want to go to scrap, or they will end up with no recoverable metal AND no artefacts to show people.
I didn't get any images, apart from this decoration outside a servo on the way to Sarina:



Which wasn't very rusty. In fact it illustrates my point.

I did, but not rusted relics, alas! Some nice ruins, and a couple of court tombs. One place was Aghaboe Abbey, which still has a cemetery in use. Just outside the cemetery gates, on the wall opposite the abbey, was a green Irish Post box - I am still wondering over that one -took a photo, just in case!!

Will have to work out a way to post some. Which photo hosting site is the best, do you think?

Damn, the GoogleEarth car didn't get close enough, but you should see the rustiness from the highway through Capella:

Interesting objects would be good to get in closer for a better look

I sorry but since google shut down Picasa I don't know where my photos go now.
I just load them to my blog.
I know photobucket is crap.

Haven't been taking much photo's as I should be lately.
I only have 1 to share

But it's a good one, selected! I have some nice steam train ones from the last run on the broad gauge from Melbourne to Wodonga, and there are some nice bits of old farming and mining machinery around. Can't get near anything much at the moment for all the rain.

Summer is on the way.

Nice one of the cable, selected  Grin

Weather has changed for the better - another couple of days and may be dry enough to get somewhere!

Unfortunately it was fake rust with some kind of sticky overspray.  Huh

Out of action for a few weeks after foot op. Then it will be the height of snake season!

There has already been a brown in next door's garden, one in the bowling club (other side, next door) grounds, two across the creek ... I hate snakes!

I will obey the dr's instructions - keep my foot elevated, etc., and, as a consequence away from the snakes and the suddenly hot weather. no spring this year, just winter and full-on summer! GAH!

This hapless old Valiant is kept as an ad for a bicycle maintenance business. It's operational, as it is driven away upon closing time.

The exterior may be rough in looks, but the under pinnings made be in tip top condition. It's a relatively new trend.
