Bendigo put on a stunner of a day today. Fine and sunny with a top temperature of 28 degrees C.

Today was also the one day a year where Bendigo hosts A Scot’s Day Out. If you don’t like bagpipes, best you don’t go. Bands from around Victoria participate. And there is lots of Scottishness. Tents for various clans and tartans, food, other music, swordfights. All a bit of fun.

Here is a video of one of the bands participating in the competition.

There are lots of (smelly) fruit bats (flying foxes) in the gardens too (see below). They were very active today. Perhaps they don’t like the pipes!
