A delightful mural in Collie, Western Australia

We’ve been to Collie, Western Australia, today, checking out some murals. The painting on the face of Wellington Weir is said to be the biggest in the southern hemisphere but I’ll share photos of that later. For the moment, here is a mural tucked in an alcove on one of Collie’s main streets. You might notice the word ‘Red’ on the browband of the horse’s bridle. That was the name given to a recalcitrant pit pony whose antics resulted in a strike within the mining community. I’ll write more about that too another day. For the moment, isn’t this a great mural? There is a little dog looking on; the expression on the little girl on the left is just delightful; on the right, a boy is lifting another child so that she can pat the horse while another is enjoying sitting on the horse’s back. We’ve just enjoyed an evening of board games and now it’s time for bed. I might have time to post another discussion tomorrow. I hope you’ve all had a good day.
