Easter Bathurst Trip

Hello lovely people! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I was away in Bathurst and we just got back very early yesterday morning (1:45am - bed never looked so good after a 12 hour drive). Jason and I went down with his brother and his girlfriend. 

It was a fairly relaxing trip. We didn't do too much but I was still exhausted from the trip. Here are a few photos, though I didn't take that many. 

This was on the way down to Bathurst. It was a really beautiful day and there was a lot of gorgeous scenery. 

There was a lot of this type of scenery too.

I forget that it's autumn because the leaves don't really change colour here in Brisbane but there were so many beautiful coloured leaves in Bathurst. 

We were there for Easter and munched on Easter eggs. Plus for some reason Cadbury chocolate tastes so good as chocolate eggs. 

We went to the horse races on the Monday but we didn't stay long. It too forever for a taxi to come pick us up and there weren't that many races on. We saw one race. I was surprised at how mild the weather was. I wore opaque tights and had a cardi, but it was only cold in the shade and when the wind blew. 

Side Story... I mentioned this on my Twitter but as we were lining up to get in, they were helping this girl out who was completely wasted and could barely walk. Anyway, I happened to turn around again and saw them trying to put her into a car and her legs gave way and she fell. They tried to pick her up and her dress got show that she had no underwear on!! 

This was on the day we left. It was Erica's (the baby in the picture's) first birthday. She's Jason's niece and one of the reasons we went down to Bathurst. Though we had to miss most of her party because we had to leave to get back to Brisbane. 

Jason and I in the back seat of our car. His brother was driving at this point. I do love how the sun is just shining though. 

It was a good trip. We did lots or relaxing, eating, watching movies and playing with Erica. But it's always nice to be home.

I do hope you had a great Easter!

What a wonderful trip. Love your photos, Gracie. And I have to say, you are just gorgeous in that photo with the baby on your lap- your smile is beeeeautiful!

I'm sorry you had to experience that girl flashing her bits around. Yikes! (it reminds me of last summer in London- the fire alarms went off in our hotel at about 1 a.m. and everyone had to evacuate... we were standing outside and I was scandalized to see a girl wearing a teeny little t-shirt that just barely covered her bottom, and no knickers! seriously! put on some underwear before you head outdoors with 300 other people!)

I got my postcards from my (other) swap partner yesterday. Yay! Hope yours arrive to you soon.

You look SO adorable, the baby is SO adorable, and the color of that red tree is astounding.
