Weekend Memoirs: Somewhere in Time

Somewhere in Time

Once a year, our church will choose a place for us to go to commemorate the Feast of Tabernacles. In 2003, we went to Bright, Victoria.

Bright is situated on the Great Alpine Road (B 500) about 75 kms from the Hume Highway (M31) which is the main road connecting Melbourne to Sydney (see map above charted by Google).

Bright is just over five hours drive from Canberra by car.

Yes, our journey had to commence from Canberra though we lived in Sydney because a couple by the name Mr and Mrs Rob-Trish Barnett offered us a lift to get there; thus, saving us the hassle of traveling on our own by train and bus which could take ages. So after the service, we were set to bound to Canberra where we had an overnight stay with the couple and sojourned the following day to the above destination.

While driving through Canberra, we experienced the stunning drive via the Snowy Mountains through Thredbo, Corryong to the Great Alpine Road and on to Bright.

The picture above let me step back Somewhere in Time to reminisce that weekend memoir where my girls and I walked about to one particular hidden park behind the roadside and down the old bridge we saw a bubbling creek. The place looked so dramatic that we decided to slowly descend a not so steep trail with care and explored ourselves the stunning woodland view as if we were inside a fairyland whatever that concept means.

Meanwhile, thank you Ebie for my birthday announcement. So very kind of you. Each year, we just keep going forward. No turning back. So I rather cherish some good memories right here in Ebie's Weekend Memoirs.
