P365 – Day 93 autumn festival (Sunday Selections)
Posted On 3 April 2011
On a chilly, windy autumn day, where the rain threatened but never arrived, we went to our town’s Autumn Festival.
After a bumpy start, where the ever-present wind blew Juniordwarf’s lunch off the table, upsetting him to the point he wanted to go home . . . ‘I don’t want to be here,’ he said . . . we had a lovely day – me, Juniordwarf and my Mum. Slabs spend most of the day on the community radio station marquee, promoting the station and fund-raising.
Here are some photos of what we got up to over the course of the day . . . which have become my photos for frogpondsrock‘s Sunday Selections project. (Go on over and check it out!)
Juniordwarf rode on a pony. Here’s two little feet.
We watched some medieval jousting.
We saw a pit of snakes. Juniordwarf was really into the snakes. I was worried at one point that he wanted to jump in there with them.
We got the best value entertainment for $3 on this climbing maze, which kept Juniordwarf entertained for at least 45 minutes. I’m not sure if he was meant to stay on for that long, but there wasn’t a crowd waiting to get on and no one told him to get off, so if he was happy, we were happy.
What that meant was that one of us could stay and keep an eye on him, while the other one could go off for a few minutes and take photographs of things that caught our eye . . .
. . . or have a relaxing glass of wine (2004 Riesling from Kinvarra Estate, if you’re interested).
Juniordwarf thought it was a great game to walk as far away from us as he could and then come running back.
And he insisted on getting a lollypop. ( I just realised I don’t know how to spell ‘lollypop’. Is it ‘lollypop’? or ‘lollipop’? Or doesn’t it matter?)
The last thing we did was watch some amazing acrobats. How I managed to capture this shot I’ll never know because this particular stunt was so quick.
All in all, we had a really fun day.
