While we were away on our recent holiday, Dear One wanted to go to Bathurst as he is a mad keen V8 Supercar fan (Ford of course) and wanted to go for a drive around the Mount Panarama circuit. I must say, I really enjoyed it myself. It was pretty difficult to stick to the 60 kilometre an hour speed limit ~ I wanted to flatten my foot and race everyone who was in front of me!
Anyway, an unexpected highlight for me (besides pretending I was Craig Loundes racing around the race track) were the number of amazing heritage properties in the township. Big wow, just driving around looking for a motel was an absolute pleasure!
Here are some photos of the drivebys we did!
My favourite ~ pretty house and perfect cottage garden. This pretty was opposite our motel.
I'm so envious of the flowers in front of the cottagey houses ~ exactly what I tried to do last year in front of my lovely white picket fence, but of course the little so and so kid down the road kept stomping or stealing everything I planted. These pretty gardens made me desperate to try again, but not likely I suppose until they move.
Imagine what you could do with this house ~ my eyes popped when I saw it. There were many, many other houses, and I certainly wouldn't object to living in Bathurst!
