A Little Moomba in Your Life.

You’ll have to excuse us we’ve been a little busy enjoying the last of the summer heat to put together some delish recipe posts but rest assured one will be back with a vengeance next week.  So we’ve been enjoying/dying in the 36° weather (97°F for those of you on the imperial system) for the last week and most people think it’s the final heatwave before the leaves start to fall and we’re lusting after that hot drink to warm our frozen hands on the way to work in the morning.  I’m not sure but you never can tell with Melbourne weather.

ANYWAY we just had a long weekend here in Vic and we tried to get outside as much as possible.  The annual Moomba festival (or the “let’s get together and have fun” festival according to a loose translation on Wikipedia) happened on the banks of the Yarra River so we went along to check out what this “Celebration of Melbourne Culture”  was all about.  What we got from the day was an array of soft toys and fruit wearing Rastafarian hats, water skiers who had the guts to actually get in to the Yarra River, puppy lovers, kids who have eaten too much candy, and yeah the photos will say the rest . .  . Warning ridiculously cute puppy photos are attached (say Hi to Mavis).

Cloud cover we were desperate for.

The main event. Seriously I don’t know how they get people to ski in this river it may not be the Thames but you really wouldn’t want to fall in in any case.
