As Bendigo is only a quick drive down the highway from Echuca we arrived and set up with plenty of time to investigate our surroundings. On our way into the town centre I espied a sign directing us to this.
It was so well worth a visit. I loved it. There is something special about a piece of earth shaped and persuaded in to a work of art by the hand of a potter. They also have an Antiques & Collectables centre attached and I was very generous in my support of some of the stall holders...I'll share when I get home as they are all wrapped for safety.
I managed to discover in Castlemaine the wonderful patchwork shop Threadbear Quilts...beautiful shop with gorgeous Applique quilts and all manner of gorgeous fabrics and yes I did buy a few little samples.
Off to Maldon and what a sweet little town. Mr R. made enquiries about a steam train ride for Sunday and as usually happens he got talking to a gentleman who had been involved in restoring this train carriage to it's former glory...
This is the main street of Maldon...
However something cheery that we don't see often at home....beautiful happy daffodils everywhere....love them.
