Wooden Boat Festival 2013

A day in the market fringes at the wooden boat festival held in Hobarts city waterfront.
A children’s festival is happening in the neighboring parliament lawns as part of the Wooden Boat Festival. Lush grass, gorgeous shade, beanbags for all, circus toys, plays and puppets, a statue, balloons and singing sea shanties, making huon pine/king billy pine boats with old fellas and being grateful for a grandfathers gnarled well storied hands helping my littlies, perusing the display of detailed model ships and admiring the handwork on a myriad of beautiful boats afloat filled the day for us. The nearby fires make for a splendid sunset aglisten with masts, despite the worry in the air.
