The past weekend was a blast, albeit a rather tiring blast.
At West End Markets (where we travel to by dinghy) we scored fruit and veg bargains…
Bananas – $1 a kilo
Pineapples – $1 each
Avocados – 3 for $6
Vine tomatoes – $3 a kilo
Green beans – $1 a kilo
Plus GF hot salami… The Smalls did some busking – something they haven’t attempted since we were in Yamba. We must have stayed there for about four hours – we saw beautiful jewellery, secondhand clothes and M particularly loved a stall full of gorgeous handmade journals…
We motored back down the river to our mooring and collapsed…. The next day Small DB and I got up early to try and find some gluten free breakfast cereal we knew was on sale. On the way, we walked through a cute market in the botanic gardens. ‘Cute’ meaning ‘lovely but pricey’.
We had no success in our quest for cereal, but hooked up later with M and Small Z. There was stuff going on outside City Hall. The Smalls fleeced the public for a while…
(And so is the whole building.)
Later in the day the Smalls and I walked through the Botanic Gardens again and joined a tour of Government House – also excellent. Our guide was fantastic – particularly as she had been conducting groups through all day!
