Hola mi amigas, I'm back! How was your Easter? Hope you didn't consume so much chocolate you ended up in a cocoa coma.
Speaking of Easter....today's post is a bit different in that I'm going to
For those of you who don't know about this Sydney institution, the Sydney Royal Easter Show is where the city meets the country for 2 weeks over the Easter period. I won't go any further down Description Road because my photos will speak for themselves, but if you want any more information, the website has it all. Other cities around Australia have shows like this too, but at different times of the year.
Ok, I've broken my "keep words to a minimum" promise, now I need to get on with it. All of these photos are in order of how I spent the day & just a warning, I took a lot of animal photos...
|An 8-month old long-necked turtle my Mum & I met at the Pet Pavilion.|
|The first of many dogs we saw that day - Tricky, a kelpie representing Australian Working Dog Rescue.|
|Scones with jam & cream + a cuppa, courtesy of the CWA (Country Women's Association). An absolute must-do at the Show. Also the only occasion where I'll drink tea.|
|A food display from the northern district of NSW, inside the Woolworths Food Dome. Another highlight of the Show. This one was my favourite this year.|
|Above: 2 of my favourite photos from the Photography section, in the Arts & Crafts Pavilion.|

|Lunch @ the Arena View restaurant inside Spotless Stadium. Sorry not sorry for forgetting to photograph it until halfway through eating...|
|Those piglets were still asleep 20 seconds before this happened.|
|This culinary "delight", believe it or not, was a hot item at the Show. Every year the Show seems more determined to up the ante with putting foods on a stick. I refrained from trying this since crumbed, deep-fried lasagna doesn't appeal to me....|
|Random balloon dude. There was a balloon lady but too many people wanted a photo with her. I was lucky to get this shot.|
|The woodchopping events are another must-see at the Show - they get competitors from around the world too.|
|Random sighting of a Tardis.|
|Just a small selection of showbags on offer inside that pavilion - I came back in here as I'd forgotten to take photos earlier.|
|Ever wondered how many Easter Show showbags would fit into an Ikea bag? Now you know.|
|For sure. 😊|
