Lady Franklin pub, and there were dragon boats on the river. On the oval, there was a good range of food and wine stalls. For lunch we chose a delicious goat curry from Boer goat breeders and goat meat producers here in Franklin, Kellie and Jim. The woman in front of me in the queue turned out to be from the local IGA supermarket and asked if she could stock their goat meat and curries. Very cool. We took the dogs down with us and they happily received plenty of pats from the kids.
The Masonic Lodge featured an exhibition of local art, and we bought two beautiful screen prints by Woodstock artist Fern Halliday to hang on the dark painted wall in our bathroom.
The 'Apple Delights' cooking competition again brought out the highly competitive nature of Franklin locals, with several friends taking out prizes: Peta won the apple teacake division, Martin had the best the apple teacake cooked by a man (I love that category - the days when men had any handicap in the kitchen seem long gone) and Rod cleaned up with his apple cider. The room downstairs in the Palais smelled heavenly.
