Wordless Wednesday: Thorndon Fair

Sunday saw us head down to the annual Thorndon Fair, held the first Sunday of December, just in time for Christmas shopping and browsing.  I think I have featured it every year…but that doesn’t mean I can’t again. It was hot, sticky and humid, and we got home just before a thunderstorm.

We stopped for a much needed lemonade

The clouds gather..but it was still busy.  View from Hill Street
Finishing with a cold beer at Sprig and Fern
What I bought…seasonings and seeds

You can find Thistles and Kiwis on Facebook, and also on Instagram@thistleandkiwis.  As for Twitter….am totally inactive these days.  If you want to get in touch, email me on thistlesandkiwis@gmail.com
