A Winter Solstice Weekend

Dark Mofo Winter Feast

What a perfect winter solstice weekend!  My old friend Sarah flew in from Melbourne on Friday morning and after hanging out during the day we rugged up and went out to Dark Mofo’s Winter Feast!  Oh my – what an amazing atmosphere … rich colours of red and purple, fantastic food, live music, a ferris wheel, lights, wine and fires.  I love winter.

Saturday morning was a stellar one and after grabbing some goodies from the German Bakery in Sandy Bay we went over to Bellerive Beach on the boat for lunch.  What a day – the mountain was looking magic and the pies were tasty too.

Nick went out to the Winter Feast again on Saturday night but Sarah and I bunkered down at home instead.  After James and Poppy were tucked up in bed, we cracked open a bottle of red and devoured some more tasty morsels from Lipscombe Larder and watched Last Tango in Halifax on the ABC.  What a lovely way to spend the longest night of the year?!

On Sunday we went our for an early lunch at Smolt in Salamanca.  Not exactly the most relaxing lunch I’ve ever had as I was ferreting around under James’ high chair trying to pick up his crumbs strewn over this very stylish restaurant with über chic clientele watching on!

It really was a wonderful weekend – I love having old friends visit and enjoying their company in our beautiful city of Hobart that was all shiny and showy on this winter solstice weekend.  Xx
