Photos of the 2014 Bangalow Billy-cart Derby Day Through My Camera Lens

The weather wasn't looking too promising at first, but it cleared up quick. 
I took a heap of pictures on Bangalow Billycart Derby Day 2014, so rather than tell a story about the day, I'll just let the pictures talk for themselves.
I have already written a few related posts in the last few weeks on this blog anyway, so where necessary I'll just add a caption to explain what the photo is about.
The photos are going to be pretty much in the order I took them on the day.
Left click on any photo to make it bigger for a better look.

Wet hay, hey?-)

I couldn't bear to watch. :-)
Owl have to try and watch though and stop window shopping in Windhorse Gallery.

This is a great little health food shop if you are ever feeling hungry in Bangalow.

If Wishes Were Fishes

Now, just where is that needle?-)
Red Dog?

The limousine the celebrities arrived in?  
No wonder they have one of these at the top of the hill in Bangalow.

You stink Smelly Kat ;-)
Why didn't you borrow this Mad Max billy-cart Steve Bisley?
I was keeping my head low after reading this sign.I wouldn't want to be hit by one ;-)
From inside the phone booth.
I just knew I shouldn't have parked my little blue car at the fire station. :-(
Seems to be a bit of an ant problem in Bangalow I noticed.
Bangalow's Stonehenge?
I'm not into Christianity, but I did find my visit to this little church at the end of the day quite a peaceful experience.
I love sitting in silence and pondering the big questions of life.
   Well, I have to say that it turned out to be quite a heavenly day after all. :-)

Looks like fun! You've got some great photos here. And a pone booth? I haven't seen one of those in years!

For some reason, I started counting the windows toward the end of the post. You have quite a terrific inroad to the peace and tranquility at the end of the post - and the day.

Great pictures which give a real flavour of the day. I liked the classic VW Camper vans - we see quite a few in Cornwall heading for the surfing beaches.

As for the billy-carts we used to call them dillies (or maybe it's spelt dilly's)

All in all looks to be a fun day.

The feelings / atmosphere you get in churches is usually quite special.

Did you see the number plate on one of those VW Campers Mike ?-)

VAN67K - hadn't noticed - how about that!!

Years ago my friend (IAN !) had a VW Camper and I was always envious of the idea of the open road. They fetch a good price in the UK nowadays.

I also meant to say that there was also a picture of a VW Camper on the Fathers Day card I received.
