Sunday side trip with Bashful

Hi guys, yes WP is an inspiration..thanks to the way it drove me nuts I was inspired to get off the computer and get out.
I have not yet finished with Bashful’s travels up North .
But the weekend we decided to get out and have an adventure in our own backyard of Victoria.
Hubby installed the doggy door for the pups which has now, with the totally safe yard, given us a chance after 3 years to go and have a day out without stressing…awesome!

So off we went…Bashful in tow!
Now I am not sure if any of you are familiar with the 1975 mystery movie called Picnic at Hanging Rock..by Peter Weir.

I will pop some links to info at the end of this post for you.
Well hubby and I have never been there and it’s only a 40 minute drive from home..so off we went ..picnic basket and our international guest on board!

Basically the film tells the story of some schoolgirls who vanish in eerie circumstances at ‘the rock’ never to be found again..it was at one stage almost an urban legend that it was a true story..strange things have been mentioned by many visitors indeed..so of course..i have to go 😉
