This is just a "what I did today" post - they tend to be more prevalent during the #blogjune challenge ;)

In the morning we visited the Alawa shops to see the new location of Dragonfly Fabrics. They're Darwin's only specialist quilting shop, and have the most amazing selection of fabrics, especially Japanese designs. They also have lots of other embroidery and sewing goodies. And you can't go to Alawa without stopping in at Dimitrios Speciality Cakes for the most beautiful cakes and Greek pastries. We bought some small pastries and a couple of rum baba for laters :)

The Glenti Greek Festival was on this weekend, so of course we had to go along to enjoy some yummy Greek food (the spanakopita were delicious!). It's always great to see the kids showing off their dance moves too! I've previously blogged about Glenti HERE.

We walked off our lunch with a stroll along the Esplanade, pausing to read some of the poignant memorial plaques near the Darwin Cenotaph. Then we finished the day's outing with a quick visit to the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens. I'm planning to visit there again soon to take some photos - when I don't have a hole in the sole of my sandal to distract me!

A quiet evening followed - an afternoon nap, a very light dinner, and a DVD on the couch. We watched Dogfight (1991) with River Phoenix and Lili Taylor. It's a little gem of a film, and a sad reminder of the wealth of talent that was lost when River Phoenix died only a few short years later.
