Today we went along to the Greek Glenti festival, held each year in the parklands alongside the Esplanade in Darwin. It was a much bigger event than I had imagined. There were lots of very busy food stalls selling souvlaki, yiros, octopus, oysters, spanakopita, moussaka, honey puffs, baklava, and a whole lot of other sweets that I don't know the names of. Music was playing in the central stage area, and kids in traditional costumes were dancing. And somewhat to my surprise, there were carnival rides, jumping castles and games with prizes. Dora the Explorer was there for the kids too.

I filmed a short video for my daily image, and you can hear the Zorba music playing in the background:

We went for a walk along the Esplanade afterwards, and I took a photo of this US Navy ship that's in town. There are lots of sailors and marines here on shore leave too ...

We continued on to Doctor's Gully where the fish feeding takes place. I'm not sure it's an activity I'm too fussed about participating in, but it's a lovely spot. It's also quite close to HMAS Coonawarra, and you can just make out the RAN patrol boats moored there in the below photo.
