2003 Travels April 16


After breakfast, set out to have a quick look around Bathurst.

This involved, firstly, finding the bowls club, so John could check out games. He booked himself in for one this afternoon, so that limited sightseeing to the rest of the morning.

I picked up some material from the Information Centre.

Then we drove to the Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit. This well known track is on public roads, so we were able to drive around it, a couple of times. Truck is no speed machine, but, hey, it could dream for a little while!

There were some  vantage points along the way that gave good outlooks over Bathurst and the surrounding country.

After early lunch at the van, John went off to bowls. He won, which really pleased him, as his opponent was one of the club’s  champions.

I walked around the park a couple of times, for some exercise.

There were lots of people with motor bikes in the park. Seemed like some sort of big get together, of mostly older riders. Some of them were members of the Vintage Club. They were obviously enjoying the contact and camaraderie and going out on assorted rides, each day.
