MORE DRESSING UP

  Enjoying a few days of dressing up of a different kind I am in Napier with my sister Joan and Denis her husband to enjoy some of the events during Napier 's Art Deco Festival. So far on the first day we went to the movies , to see "Flying Down to Rio" with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.  Then out to dinner with friends in the evening.
Next day we took the rail car shuttle to the neighbouring city of Hastings, turning back the clock again the rail car we travelled on was 73 years old. At Hastings we did a guided walk of historical buildings before travelling back again


Here is the three of us in our finery.

The fun is that everyone dresses up and so you see a great number of 1930'S outfits where ever you go. Evening we went into town to picnic and see the show at the sound shell
Yesterday following a quiet day at home and yes I did do some stitching, we went out for dinner .... The Alfresco Munch at the Hawkes Bay Club where we dinned at tables under umbrellas on the lawn, my outfit was one Maree had created specially for me for this event.
