Merc Magoo and Friends go on a road trip

John and I as well as Merc Magoo and his friends, Giddy Up 1 and Giddy Up 2, went on a road trip heading north.


On the way we visited my brother and his family in Lake Cathie, where Giddy Up 1 is now living, and we also visited John's sister and family in Coffs Harbour.  We arrived at Diann and Bill's last Friday evening, after a very speedy shopping expedition into Pacific Fair.  That night Giddy Up 2 moved to his new home with Diann and Bill's grandson.

Saturday saw the boys visiting numerous motorbike shops while Diann and I had a lovely day visiting her local patchwork shops.  Managed to find a few things to buy.


On Sunday Diann, Bill, Maurice, Merc, John and I all took off for a drive

to Fernvale


Gus Beutell's Lookout

Esk, Crows Nest and Highfields and stayed overnight in Toowoomba.  Monday morning we had a look around Toowoomba then drove back to Diann and Bill's via Nobby.  Had lunch at Rudd's Pub - where Steele Rudd wrote "Dad and Dave".


On Tuesday John, Merc and I drove back to Sydney - big trip, stayed overnight and then yesterday met up with a bunch of friends to visit the Darling Harbour Quilt Show.  I didn't buy too much there.  The crowds were huge this year - I found it a bit overwhelming in the morning.  We have lots of photos of the quilts - some unbelievably stunning quilts on show this year, but I'm not sure if putting these photos on blogs is allowed.



An excellent few days.  And this afternoon Merc is moving to his new home with Baby Wil.

Sounds like you had the ideal trip with your silent passengers riding in the back :)

Glad you had a fun (and safe) trip.....great pics....I am sure all the recipients of your handiwork are very happy! I find the big shows are a bit overwhelming..and not the best venues for buying up big! Nice to see all the new gadgets we "need" though...I bought my SewEasy table at the Adelaide show last year.

I yelled out to you when you went via Coffs, but you mustn't have seen me, but your two friends did. Hope you had a great road trip.

Sounds like your passengers on the road trip were a little better behaved than my 3 passengers were when we did that trip with our kids! And smelly bits to clean out when motion sickness got the better of one of them.... Oh yes, and no arguing in the back seat....bliss!!!
