a day at the races

We’ve just had a great weekend- not much sewing but nice never-the-less. On Saturday we went to the Brisbane Races at the Doomben racetrack with a group of people. I had never been there before so it was a real eye-opener.

We had tables booked in the East Terrace which overlooked the racetrack, so we could enjoy the event in air-conditioned comfort, on which turned out to be a really hot day.

We enjoyed a buffet lunch with a drink or two and some of us placed a bet or two. It was also an opportunity to dress up a little – some scrubbed up quite well!
