BRUCE

 Pics: Barry Simmons

Half way though my visit it started raining with odd water drops on the lens of the camera. With the rain I thought it was wise not to go to Hammond with about 25 kms on Gravel Road as the caretaker at Bruce RWS mentioning there’s is no building there anymore. The Bruce Railway Station has a retired caretaker on site who lives in a side building who allowed me take photo’s.
