St. Kilda Fest

Melbourne has some pretty great festivals. We decided to check out the festival in St. Kilda a couple weekends ago. We met up with Bruce (one of the guys that Steve works with) and his fiance, Claire. Claire and I have emailed for awhile now but haven't had much luck with finding the chance to meet. It was great to finally meet her! She's a grade 1 teacher and really lovely. We share a love of laminating things, singing children's songs after hours and having a clean house. Needless to say, we had lots to chat about!
The festival was really big. I wasn't it expecting it to have as much as it did...it just kept going and going, with the main street being closed off to traffic. Lots of bands playing on various stages, vendors, food and people! How relaxed does Steve look in this pic? I love it!
We watched Megan Washington play. I really liked her. Cool music and she was fantastic on the piano!
What's a festival down under without a croc and a snake?

It was a pretty hot day, so it was nice to have the festival by the water for cooling off. I really, really love having the beach right in the city! Steve, Jesse and I often hop in the car and go to the beach for a quick swim and then head home. Very refreshing!
