It is the loveliest thing, when the town that you move to decides to throw you a welcoming party in honour of your presence, and then at each anniversary they throw more parties, just to remember how amazing it is that you decided to regal them with your being to reside in their locality.
Yep. That, or it happened to be the Main Street Mornington Festival, which falls on the third Sunday of October and has been happening for 22 years now, and it just so happily coincides with the time of year you decided to move.
Same same. A lucky coincidence either way.
And so the gratitude and happiness at our 1 year long Sea change continued today at the Main Street Fest. It was a stunning day, with a very fresh, strong sea breeze, and yet still, the people were out in force, packed like sardines in the middle of the street as they squeezed their way through amongst the countless and endless food stalls on either end.
After moving very slowly for what seemed like too long, we ended up deciding to just sit down and watch everyone else idle on by, and so we happened across the best spot at one of our most favourite-st of places to eat, drink, do anything really: The Winey Cow.
(I had the best Laksa!)
A spot of ice cream was required from Vespa’s afterwards
And then once some more fun and drinks were had, we headed off back to the car a good few blocks away…
Oh, to be a kid and be able to hitch a ride like that. She is so damn lucky. I had to walk.
And then, poor Hubbie’s shoulders.
But all in all, the day was splendid, and we had spent it as intended – us, our family, just doing what we came here to do a year ago…
Enjoy life 🙂
