This weekend just gone, boyfriend and I went for a weekend away to the Winter Magic Festival in Katoomba.
We stayed at the priests cottage in Leura which was a nice little self contained granny flat type of place:
After eat a sustaining breakfast of pancakes (delicious I might add) we headed off to Katoomba and got the BEST PARKING SPOT EVERR!! I'm always really lucky with parking spots and the luck continued :)
The whole of Katoomba Street is closed off for the festival and lined with stalls selling everything from fresh home made fudge to ugg boots to dog collars and fairy skirts. It's an ecclectic mixture of hippie, punk, rockstar, teen and goth.
We got there just in time for the parade:
The view of the crowds alllll the way up Katoomba Street - packed!!
Mel bought some Gozleme - spinach and cheese I think. I forgot to ask how it was, but you can't really go wrong with Gozleme, it's always pretty good!! I'd also like to point out how cool Mel's skirt is. It's made of TIES and she made it herself. Awesome!!
On a stick to boot!!
You'd think I would have been full after that feast. And I was. Until I spotted churros.
After the churros, we meandered back to our respective cars and headed back to our houses to rest for a bit, and then boyfriend and I went to my brother and his fiancees for the best dinner ever. I forgot to take photos, but it was damn tasty. Mel's a fabulous cook. Here's some pics of the doggies though!!
So the weekend was delightful and fun as always - can't wait for next year!!
