Off To Orange – Off and On

 
 
 
  
Orange beautiful house 2

Gorgeous federation house in central Orange.

Hello from Orange where, for family reasons, I’ll be spending a bit of time in the coming weeks and months.

It’s not a hardship, is it? I love getting to know places well and hope to be here enough to search out some lovely spots to share with you.

One post to look out for will be  ‘Cafes In Orange With Wifi.’  I’ll start researching that one tomorrow.

Meantime, I come to you from Orange City Library where you can get two hours of wifi for free, plus they let members of any other NSW library join as a reciprocal member. Lovely to feel so welcome.

One of the things I already love about this NSW Central West city is that there are so many beautiful old houses. I’ve been walking around admiring them, and loving some painted chimneys. So stylish.

And I loved the old house below too, loads of character amidst the bleached woodwork.

I mucked about with this in Photoshop and used an ‘oil painting’ filter.

Will be here all week but am planning to do the “This Week In Sydney” post as usual as there’s lots of material already.  I should add it’s all wifi willing.

Isn’t all of life?

Hope the start of term goes well for all those with kids returning to school.

Take it easy,

Seana xx

      Me too. Wellington’s not too far away ether. I know there are some other gorgeous wee places nearby too, am looking forward to seeing a lot more of this area.

    I’m afraid I don’t know much about Orange Seana but think it’s cold. I’m hoping you can keep rugged up and cosy!

      The heating is on! It’s a lovely spot, Deb, but springtime will be even lovelier.

    I’ve never been to Orange, but I’d love to wander around all those houses!

      It’s a treasure trove of gorgeous homes, and I can’t wait to explore the nearby towns too.

    Orange is on my to do list. I really want to go. Find a B&B with a cat for me okay?

  • Hi Seana,
    Most cafes in Orange seem to have wifi. If you send me your email I’ll attach our complete Dining list.

      Hello Tracey, I’m found three great ones so far. I have your list of dining places on a brochure, there are so many great places to eat here. Can you assist Ashleigh who left a comment asking for cat/pet-friendly places to stay???

      Ah you’ve been so close but so far, when you visited Dubbo. It’s a really delightful place, I have just spotted a chocolate shop/cafe which must be investigated thoroughly.
