May 19. Day 140. Here comes the Spiderman

Note to self. RTFM.
Had I read the manual, I would have known the Paniyiri Festival didn't open until noon today. But making it up as I go along is more my style so the festival was still closed when I walked there this morning - so I kept walking and ended up at South Bank.Will get me to the Greek tomorrow.
I don't think Brisbane has any better family destination than South Bank. Today it was buzzing in the absolutely perfect autumn weather.
Picnics, swimming, markets, Frisbee throwing, water park, playgrounds, street entertainment, eateries. There's always something happening and it is one of my favourite places to head on my stroll.
Today I met Ezekiel and his mum Desirae with the face painting fairy. I love how still he is sitting as he is transformed into a spiderman.
I've never had my face painted (unless you count that which I apply myself every morning so as not to scare the natives when I leave the house). It looks like it tickles. Perhaps I should donate some coins to the face painting fairy one day and find out.

  1. Love the detail. The sunlight today was just perfect for photos I think. Same sort of atmosphere at the Manly waterfront. I should get out more.
