We stayed a few days with our friends in Gisborne, Victoria on our way back from Sydney, January 2009. while we were there we went to visit the historic town of Castlemaine, about a half hour drive north of Gisborne. While we were there I managed a few photos of some of the beautiful old buildings. I’d love to spend more time wandering around this historic place.

We spent quite a long time looking through an antique shop. We found a great place to have lunch and we also browsed in a wonderful bookshop for quite a while. I love old bookshops; you never know what wonderful titles one will find. I didn’t find anything this time.

One of the interesting – and curious – things about the bookshop was the large statue of a cat on the roof over the footpath.  The photo below shows a close up of the cat.
