Jamieson in its Autumnal Splendour

The past few days at home have been delightful. Warm golden days and cold nights. As dawn breaks a light frost lies across the fields. There is no wind. The deciduous trees are shedding their leaves, putting on a spectacular display. For you gentle reader I have included some humble photographic offerings to entice you to come and visit Jamieson, and to help you understand why I love to call this place home!

About Andrew Dwyer

I am a cook, author of three published cookbooks, historian and expedition leader. I live in Jamieson, a town with a population of 200 in a valley where two rivers meet in the Australian High Country. I am married to Jane and we have three grown ups that were once children. They all return home regularly for short visits. Life is good. NB: This site uses Australian English, so if you are American you may struggle with the spelling.
