We live right on the edge of Canberra, about 5 minutes away from the tiny little town of Tharwa. We went to the Tharwa Fair on the weekend. Did I mention the town is tiny? There's a school, which closed a few years ago and is now just a Preschool, and there's a general store / antique store and maybe ten houses. So it's a little fair.
The highlight for me was HANDS DOWN the four newborn lambs. I happily hung out with them and let them chew on my fingers for ages. Tassy loved them too. I could SO easily have brought one home with me. Oh how I love them. I was in heaven.
You could tell it was a country fair...
We've seen this same reptile display at several fairs - we always love the guys you can touch. There are a few lizards and a tortoise. And snakes and goannas in cages, and snakes wrapped around the owners.
And I ducked over to the general store for a look.
Fancy a five piece set of 1930s kitchen cannisters for $625?
Some creepy but fascinating shadow puppets.
Not a bad way to spend a lazy hour on a Sunday afternoon.
