Today I spent an hour walking around the area.
Lots of beautiful houses and a lovely coffee shop on Duthy St. No lyrca in this cafe. It’s favoured by locals mostly walking there meeting friends. Not a bike in sight.
We spent the rest of the day at home playing with 3year old Florence – Florry and waiting for the other children to return from school.
Marg had invited very old friends to afternoon tea. And to enjoy the remainder of Florry’s birthday.
There was home made pinata to crack open.
Later that evening we left all the children with Marg and headed off with Vashti for another Festival treat.
We parked opposite the Festival centre and walked across the pedestrian bridge. I live this city. So easy to get around.
We had a bite to eat & drink at the Taphouse brewery on the river and went to the newly erected Summerhouse. Built for the festival it’s open on the top and has just curtains for walls. It’s like being at an outdoor venue with wooden bench seats.
Tonight we are seeing the legendary jazz musicians Paul Grabowsky on piano and Vince Jones, singer and fluegelhorn player.
I loved the laid back restrained performance.
Starting at 9.30 it was another late night. Thank goodness we don’t have to hurry in the morning!
