Homeward bound......

   After leaving Bathurst on Saturday we stopped at Wellington for a bit of sight seeing.....

Coffee and a biscuit in the lovely cafe was first on the list.....


There were caves to see here but Gavan wasn't up to the walk needed to see them.....

maybe another time.....

This Japanese Garden was just beautiful so I spent a lot of time there enjoying the peace and quiet......












We had dinner at the "Cow and Calf" hotel.....
great name I thought.....



So next morning we were off again.....
Look out Dubbo here we come.....

I wanted to see the "Taronga Western Plains Zoo" so that was the next stop.....

Photo overload here I'm sorry.....













Love these funny little Meerkats.....







Unfortunately I didn't get to spend as much time here as I would have liked but Gavan has had enough of our little get away and her wants to go home......

I did have a great time even though it was short so I'm pretty happy with that....

Toodles.....

More fun in Bathurst.....


We were up reasonably early to take in a little sight seeing in the city....
lots of old buildings and beautiful parks .....








Tried taking a selfie but as you can see I'm not very good at it..... lol


Then we were off to drive around the Mount Panorama  Circuit.....
It was really interesting, goodness knows how the race drivers manage this track at such high speeds....











So what else could we do to fill in the day.....

I know....
"Quilts in the Shearing Shed at O'Connell,
 just outside of Bathurst with Brigitte Giblin.

raising money for the local Bush Fire Brigade....

Oh my gosh.... I have never seen so many quilts in one place before.....

Photo overload now..... sorry.....


Well look who I found ....Anni Downs.....



So a few purchases and off to get a cuppa with Gav....

The ladies had a cafe setup with wonderful home made scones and jam....


It was sooooo relaxing sitting in the sun....
the scones and jam were fantastic.....


So now to see the quilts.....
Gav had a little rest in the car for this bit..... lol

It was actually in the shearing shed..... bit smelly but great.....















So glad I got to see them all.....
My shopping for the day.....


Well that's all I have today.....
Toodles again.....
