Beautiful swan


But it's not all loss along the shopping strip at Lawson. A year ago I showed you modern additions being removed from the Blue Mountain Hotel. Here is the beautiful swan emerging from the ugly duckling.

  1. It looks so much more impressive in your photo here than when we whizzed past it the other day. However, it really deserves to be surrounded by manicured lawns and beds of agapanthus and lavender with a few jacaranda scattered around. With the highway quite so close they will really have to put their heads together so that it simply does not degenerate into a roadside pub.

    I like that concept of facing the facilities in the other direction (your direction) and focussing on a town square. The village for the villagers.

    I guess it is a wait'n'see game where you soften what you end up with whem the roadworks are completed.

  3. You must be thrilled to see this nearing completion. I love the corrugated roof, when we do our workshop over that's what I'm putting up.

  4. Paula, the CI roof certainly looks better than the old tiles.

    Julie, I'm not entirely sure of the orientation of the new shops but I end the series with some images of the town square tomorrow.
