We've arrived in Bendigo...

We had a dream run, traffic wise, to the airport this morning, but as Judy pulled up to let us out, the ‘heaven’s opened’! So we had to scuttle into the terminal pretty quickly. Our flight left on time and we actually arrived a little early at Tullamarine. It wasn’t long before we were in our hire car and heading towards Bendigo.



Our lunch stop was the charming town of Sunbury. We ate at a bakery and the hot food was a great way to warm up. Yes it’s quite chilly down here!

We reached Bendigo late afternoon. Drove around some of the streets looking at the lovely historical buildings, and then headed for our motel. DH and I lounged around for a while ( I worked on a crocheted kitten blanket for the latest K4BN challenge) and then we  went back into town for dinner. I had been told by another member of K4BN, that the Shamrock Hotel is a great place to eat...so that’s where we went tonight. The food was wonderful and the surroundings elegant and beautifully restored.

Tomorrow we have tickets for the 10 o’clock session of the Grace Kelly Exhibition. I’m hoping that cameras are allowed so I can write a post and show lots of photos of Princess Grace’s film costumes as well as many of her own (designer ) clothes. When I went to see the Valentino Exhibition in Brisbane last year, I was ‘blown away’ by the beautiful ‘workmanship’ on those clothes.
