Double Bay Festival Fun


The other day I finished early after a super early start wedding, on the way back home I heard on the radio that there was a little community festival in Marrickville going on, so we went.
It was quite fun and reminded us a lot of our old London neighborhood, Dalston!
It was so multicultural and gritty and basic. And really fun! Good music and funny little stalls,
we had a coconut and sat down on the street eating some yummy fresh Gozleme.
(pictures coming soon!)

Last Sunday we had a street festival here in Double Bay, which was very different.
Our sleepy pretty harbour side suburb was buzzing and crowded.
While the kids in Marrickville had the chance to learn self defense and to present their kick boxing and kung fu skills, the Double Bay kids, were pony & camel riding, looking at the luxury car exhibit and being spoiled with face paint.

We loved both events.
The Double Bay  festival had lot's of pretty jewelry stands and little fashion labels, and home deco stuff ...I  had so much fun browsing around. We brought home a pretty new candle.
We petted the camels, ponies and farm animals, had some ice coffee and were strolling around before heading home and giving our place a long overdue major clean up. Then I made some Shakshuka dish for dinner,  which turned out great. We love our new Otto Lenghi "Plenty" cook book.

Most days feel like Summer already, I am loving it!
