Girl out of Melbourne - Part I

It's too hard to choose just a couple of photos from my mini road trip to the south-west of Victoria this weekend...

Old bridge at Skipton

Cute little church at Chatsworth

My old primary school at Caramut, which closed a few years ago due to lack of students. A sad little playground...

The Botanic Gardens at Penshurst, fed by a natural, never-failing spring (that green/orange stuff under the bridge is water with a covering of duck weed)
