Mary Poppins in Maryborough

Mary Poppins
Some of my friends might have noticed that I've virtually disappeared from the net for the week. The fact is that I've been away on holidays. I was in Hervey Bay from Monday to Wednesday, and drove down to Maryborough, Queensland yesterday.

So here I am, in Maryborough, a Mary Poppins town. Picture above shows the King, Mary Poppins and I in Mary Poppins Market Day.

P. L. Travers, writer of the world's most popular nanny Mary Poppins, was born in Maryborough in 1899. In the Mary Poppins story, there were a number of things originated from Maryborough, such as the bank (Banks), the one o'clock canon and many others.

There was a 1 pm cannon firing.

Later, Laurent and I took "The Mary" riverboat cruise. A nice tour along the Mary River.

I have a lot of photos from Hervey Bay, since I am not using my own internet, I don't think it will be a good idea to post more photos. Once I get back to Sydney, I might post more photos.

Another busy day scheduled tomorrow.

Any chance I could use your Maryborough images as references for a small series of paintings I'm planing?
