Bathurst Designer Events Biggest Expo 17-18th November 2012

Up at 4.30 am with all the kids and on the road by 5am to be in Bathurst for the Designer Events Bathurst show Saturday and Sunday.




Outside our house on the driveway at 5am
 The drive was relaxing, I love being out in the country, it was a beautiful morning so clear, clean and an easy drive to Bathurst.  We have relatives in Lithgow and I love the drive down Mount Victoria it is steep and dangerous the local council have being widening the road trying to make it safer, it is still steep though.  As you descend you look out over the valley towards Lithgow it's just so beautiful we would have stopped to take a photo but there is just nowhere to safely stop.


the road just outside Bathurst




A quick photo stop at about 7.30am on the way into Bathurst breakie at Maca's then onto the show to set up.
