The past couple of days, my home town of Ballarat (Victoria, Australia) the city showed off it’s heritage. The one event I was most excited for was the Tweed bike ride – I wore my sister’s cape and a tartan skirt, but it was dressed up enough. Before that started I went around to the craft markets that were on in various locations – only one of them was really worth the visit.
Also took a peak around the town hall, and the apron contest/display.
Then; the ride! There was about 30 of us or so, which was a nice turn out – and right as we started, the sun came out! Glorious! It was a leisure ride, so it was nice taking in the scenery. Half way we had a ‘break’ so everyone could catch up, and this was when I put my camera around my neck, and as we took off, I took photos of us riding whilst riding – not the safest of things to do, but we weren’t going that fast. And that was that.

The following day I went to see the ‘Doctor Blake’ costume display, and just as I entered the precinct, they said that there was a talk about to start, so I went to that first. It was the creator and costume designer talking about all things from the show, and then a Q&A session. I then went and checked out the costumes – not as many as I thought (and in a small area) but I suppose it’s what they had to work with. Just took a few snaps – not of everything because I wasn’t sure if we were allowed to, but some for the viewing.

Next year I hope to go on the bike ride again – this time hopefully someone else I know will come along so we can ride together.
