For the next week I will be posting some photos of our Art Deco festival.  Yesterday I had to most fabulous day. I headed out with camera and just enjoyed the atmosphere and took photos.  These cars were parked in the CBD while there was stalls around selling original clothing and shoes.  Most people were dressed up and everyone was having a good time.

And there were lots of goodies to buy.

If I took photos of anyone I would talk to that person and ask for their permission to use images on them.  Most of them were so flattered that they didn’t mind at all.

Thanks for visiting.

Good morning from another hot Hastings.  We are expecting over 30 degrees this afternoon which will be hard on those participating in the vintage car show for the Art Deco festival.  I will be going over with hubby to see it and of course take photos. I know it would be hard for those in the northern hemisphere that are suffering a terrible winter.  So I hope these photos will warm you up.

Time for the weekly challenge by The Daily Post.

When I was over in Napier yesterday I found these seagulls enjoying the  cool water.  It was very hot and they just seemed to have a great time dipping in and cooling themselves down.  

Thanks for visiting and here are some other great blogs to look at as well.

Good evening from a hot muggy Hastings.

Today I went over to Napier to soak up some of the atmosphere of the Art Deco festival.  I found these echinaceas and stopped as you do for photos.  I am not a green fingered person so I had to search the Internet for the name of these flowers.  I have invested in a huge book and these plants were even in it.  I literally turned each page one by one.  Ah, how great the Internet is.

Here are some other great blogs
