On Trek again

It may have been midnight ....but I finished my 9 patch blocks for April!

So not to leave May till the end ...I did them TOO!

Last weekend DH and I hit the road again in the Bash car...Good 'ol Car 57 for a Trek reunion.

It was so much fun and we did a 360 klm Trek through the Bunendoor, Majors Creek,  Araluen and Braidwood areas around Goulburn

Morning tea at Bunendoor

Morning drink at Majors Creek

Majors Creek Pub

Beautiful View before heading down the windiest, dustiest, roughest, pothole covered road in Aus!!!

view before heading down the hill to Araluen
REALLY windy road ..Majors Creek Mountain Road!!

Pre lunch drinks at Araluen 
The Pub at Araluen
Soldiers Memorial at Araluan...such a peaceful spot
Then lunch at Braidwood RSL...but no time to explore.....Im sure there is a quilt shop here somewhere!

Quilt shop at Braidwood....but thats as close as I got :(
Being the navigator (she who must be obeyed), following the directions...operating the radio...(10 / 4 good buddy! ) ..and the dust lights and the siren just dosen't leave room for my stitching ... though I did take some with me...just in case.

River crossing...looks so peaceful, but caused heaps of problems!!

 A little fun...(and a lot of dust) in a dune buggy

 Then back to Goulburn to the Gordon Hotel for a spit roast dinner, catch up with a great bunch of people and lots of laughs reminiscing over our Trek 4 kidz Ridge Top Trek in August last year.

If it looks like this was a bit of a pub crawl ...It was!!   drinking lemonade of course!

 Till next time
