Winter Magic Festival

Well Bren and I had a nice day at the Winter Magic Festival. We got there early before it got too crowded but by the time we got back to our shop there were thousands of people lining the main street of Katoomba. Here are some photos. There were a lot of colourful characters but I was too embarrased to take their photos without asking the first.

Here is one of the new murals that are popping up all over Katoomba. This is a lovely colourful one.

The lady with the twigs coming out of her head was certainly interesting:)

This is a photo of the Carrington which is the oldest building in Katoomba and is part owned by friends of ours. This is where Bren and I sometimes go to after work for a drink. It's lovely to sit on the lounges in front of the open fires:) The reason for the tunnels on the roof is that the Carrington hosts the Winter Magic Ball every year and this years theme was Titanic. The Chef even recreated a 5 course dinner from the Titanics menu. Being a Titanic fantatic myself I really liked this years theme.

Love these dragonflies:)

The night ended with a wonderful fireworks display from the roof of the Carrington.

    Thanks for the photos!!! I have to laugh, you say it is cold and wintry there - it sure doesn't look like any kind of winter I know! LOL I love the smokestacks on the building! I remember your pics from that ball, but didn't realize then that it was a Titanic theme - I wish I had been there, I love that stuff too! My father's professor in college was a Titanic survivor (was a child on the ship)... he is now deceased.

    Great pics - it looks like a good time was had by all! :)

    You know, the penny's only just dropped - your new shop is in the next street from where I used to live as a little girl! Talk about a small world...
