Default oot and aboot in the west

After working 4 weekends straight, I needed to get away. The Husky hasn't been out of the garage since the film festival in Bright in Feb *shame* and the tyres which were fitted 12 months ago (but only 5000km or so) have one ride left in them.

The day started off a bit dreary, but the further we got from home the better the day got. I guess the meteorologists would say there was a low pressure trough.

First stop was in Mill Park, where Willy if often said to have his snout in the trough.



Then South Morang


Across Mt Disappointment to Kilmore


Lancefield


Past stonehenge


Spring Gully


Stopped at Jag's Grill in Bendigo for some chaff (and a quesadilla, taco and some fried chicken) before heading up to the Bendigo showgrounds


California Gully


The Marong Family hotel has drinks for the whole family, and their steeds,


Bridgewater


and finally tied up the reigns for the day in Inglewood vic.

Inglewood is a quaint little town on the Calder Hwy with plenty of history dating back to the gold rush.


The local butcher has been in the same shop for 70 years. He even has a sense of humour


Headed off this morning south, first stop Bealiba


Dunolly's trough has been adapted for Shetland ponies, presumably


south to Timor


Maryborough


Carisbrook


Majorca


Stopped for lunch at the much raved about Glenlyon General Store. They were doing a booming Father's day trade, and were pretty full, but the food was reasonably fast, and the food excellent.

and one more stop in Woodend before we headed home.
