This long weekend...

James Craig, not wooden but very impressive. Smoky skies in the background.

Lyndon and I visited the Australian Wooden Boat Festival. It was great, the weather was fab and the Hobart foreshore really came to life. We actually went down Friday evening, Saturday morning and then again Saturday evening.

Lyn had in the past had his boat in the festival, but as it's still being restored we will have to wait another 2 years to take part again.

We rather liked the vintage Chris Craft above, but I have to say, the sea dogs were my favourite!
Look at this cutie below! He was my favorite :)

We also went to the Hobart Regatta where I had my first ever go on the Dodgem Cars. It was fun! I think I was quite good at it (can you be bad at it???). It was certainly a laugh, chasing people around in circles.
I also did a lot of gardening, pulling out a tonne of weeds. Still a lot to do to make the garden looks pretty again.
Oh and did I mention I am taking part in a craft market in less than two weeks? Eeek! I had ordered fabric for scarves but the printers haven't posted it yet!! Freaking out here...
Have a great week


  1. Looks like a wonderful event Sarah. I love old boats and the dog is gorgeous of course and I also love that old craypot. Brings back great memories of feasting on fresh crays when I was a kid!
    Hope your fabric arrives soon x

  2. I love the old wooden boats! I can't wait to get out on the water"! infact.. I just can't wait to get out in the sun. Looks like a fun trip. The dog is so cute.

  3. Great photos Sarah - the one of the flag is brilliant!
    Try not to panic about the market - I'm sure the fabric is on the way, and all will be well, and beautiful!

  4. It was a fabbo weekend, Sarah. I can't believe it was your first go on the dodgems! J x


I love hearing from you - your lovely comments make my day!
