French love Down Under

A quick post today, to share some photos from an inaugural Bastille Festival in Sydney. We celebrated a week early, but the love for France in Australia is in evidence as, not only were there large numbers around me today, but Brisbane is hosting a big festival this weekend, Melbourne hosts theirs on July 14 and 15, Circular Quay in Sydney celebrates over four big days Thurs 12 through to Sun 15 July, the Sunshine Coast holds their festival on the 28th July...and that is just a small selection of all of the parties, get-togethers, balls, special film sessions etc. to celebrate the French National Day Down Under. I was the guest of French Cargo and spent a lovely morning with Kathie signing books and chatting to her customers. I might just take this opportunity to say 'thank-you' to Kathie. She has been such a wonderful support for me and this writing venture.

  1. Looks like you had great weather. I would have expected it to be cold and rainy. Your book is a perfect fit with all of the other charming French themed products sold by Kathie at French Cargo. Next time bring a few of your beautiful baguettes to join the display! (or was that one of them in the bicycle basket?)

    1. We did have great weather, Ellen. Sunshine with a cool wind...certainly not enough to deter all of the most-appreciative francophiles. Baguettes - I did not even think of that, but not a bad idea.
