On this day, the first of Autumn, the sun is shining, yet the air is cool. The warmth of summer seems past, yet this could rapidly change. There are winds blowing so strongly we dodge sticks and twigs as we walk our familiar path. Eee bends down to pick up a few in her way and tosses them aside into the "garden" as she calls the roadside plantings. We all wear jackets to warm our bidies as we wander outside in the cool of the morning. Welcome Autumn, we see you are here. Now we will take our time to watch the leaves as they turn, such a delight.
Autumn is the season of festivals in Adelaide. Last year we enjoyed the Fringe Family Day, this year, the Garden of Unearthly Delights.
Ess delighted in this Chair-o-plane ride despite that fact that Daddy thought it would be too fast for her. I was quietly confident.
And some live puppetry at The Puppet Palace - Pigs in Wigs is the story of The Three Little Pigs from the perspective of the wolf. You know all he wanted to do was bake a cake for his little old granny and needed to borrow a cup of sugar from his neighbourly pigs...or perhaps they weren't quite so neighbourly.
The only things we missed out on seeing was Amococo. We didn't know it was there and when we finally wandered over to explore the last tickets of the day had already been sold. It's "an inflatable luminarium by UK company Architects of Air of labyrinthine tunnels and soaring domes. A walk-through sculpture inspired by natural geometry" and it looks fascinating...we will definitely be back to visit.
