It was a long weekend for everyone, so Jo and I decided it was time to check out the silo artworks in the Wimmera Mallee region.

Friday morning first thing I had an appointment with my dentist, so after that was done and I had paid for a few more months education for his kids I was home again and the bikes were loaded and we were geared up. It was on and off rain and drizzle and wet roads. Fuel in Donnybrook, lunch at the roadhouse in Serpentine and then straight to a motel in Wycheproof for the night.

On Saturday morning we headed out to the Silo Art Trail. I took my drone along for some big picture views of the giant artworks

Headed back to Wycheproof for another night then sunday morning headed home via St Arnaud, Natte Yallock, GlenDonald, terrible sunday morning traffic jam in Daylesford and lunch at the Glenlyon General Store.

Missed you by a day. Saturday arvo I’d decided to follow the solo art trail Sunday but then ended up staying at Donald so continued easy.

This one at Weethalle is my favourite so far.

Great pics there, folks:clap:

It's amazing what they come up with and what sort of sense of sizing and effects the artists/ painters have to put this all onto a weird, curved canvas of THAT size.
Looking at all those I wouldn't know which to call "best"....they all have their own set of highlights.

Love that silo art.

FYI, we've got some of our own now - I need to take a little ride down to Waimate to check them out some day...
